Just when I start warming to the idea of getting a full-time job in the U.S., I read something like this and it just turns my stomach.

Last week, MSNBC host Tucker Carlson, a well-known conservative pundit, let loose with a string of anti-Canada rants.
“Anybody with any ambition at all, or intelligence, has left Canada and is now living in New York,” he said.
“Canada is a sweet country. It is like your retarded cousin you see at Thanksgiving and sort of pat him on the head. You know, he’s nice but you don’t take him seriously. That’s Canada.”

I guess there are morons like Tucker Carlson everywhere, but if I end up going to work in the U.S. I’ll only be reinforcing his views. Grrr…
