Six In The Morning: Snow Rhymes With Fiacco

6-in-the-morning1 PAT AND PRECIPITATION Pat Fiacco becomes the new mayor of Tourism Saskatchewan and there’s a snow warning in Regina. Coincidence?

2 TWO DEAD, 19 INJURED There was an explosion at a Quebec health product factory yesterday.

3 MAYBE THERE’S A REASON REPUBLICANS ACCUSE EVERYONE OF ENTITLEMENT AND STUPIDITY Aw, look at Karl Rove toss the blame for his own terrible predictions and inability to get his Republicans morlocks elected. Calm down there, little guy! Oh, and there’s this: Mitt Romney had no idea he was going to lose.The party has started a review of their Wednesday calamity. Curious to see how this un-electable coalition of mountain-shack gun nuts, Christian extremists, libertarian billionaires and sociopath stock traders will cope with the fact that they’re just not living in a reality-based world.

4 TRAPPED ON THE SAME PRECIPICE The Bank Of Montreal’s governor warns about the risk to Canada  of the U.S. fail to raise the debt ceiling. Republicans in the House Of Representatives have held the U.S. economy hostage for the last couple of years with this threat. It’s what Republicans do now.

5 REST IN PEACE, MR. DUCKWORTH Retired Coronation Street star Bill Tarmey has passed away.

6 DEAR LEADER INDIA WRAP-UP Stephen Harper has left India and Terry Milewski sums up his trip.

BIG BUDGET ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE The trailer is live for World War Z, a zombie movie that looks like it has nothing to do with the excellent book it’s based on (which is like something The Economist would publish if The Economist published books about zombie apocalypses). It might be terrible, it might be good but it’s definitely going to be ignored in this blog post in favour of the trailer for this  low-budget-looking tale of zombie love.

  1. RIP Bill Tarmey. Jack Duckworth was a great character – he started out as a two dimensional comic lunk, and managed to maintain the comedy while offering many more insights into the man behind the clown.

  2. The former mayor is a logical choice for the job. It’ll be interesting to see how he adjusts to the different organizational dynamic.

  3. Re: Fiacco. Wow, only in navel-sucking present-day Saskatchewan can a lead construction lobbyist be elected mayor and a restaurant-owner be named Tourism CEO. Pinch me, I must be dreaming. What’s next? We put the priest in charge of the orphanage?

  4. You guys should get outside in the snow! It’s really not that cold, and if you have to shovel, at least it isn’t heart-attack texture.
