How about both of them wrap themselves in the flag for their own partisan gains.

I don't think Danny Devito would be happy to see himself portrayed that way!

Unfortunately, I'm not so sure Mr Martin Jr will be saying sayonara to his political career after 23 January. More's the pity.

Your analogy kinda flops on that last point. George W. isn't having a "last" election, because 2004 was his last election. Barring any lapses to his health, he will leave in January 2009. Constitutional requirement, you see.

Like most twins there are key differences.

1) Paul Martin has had balanced budgets, Bosh No
2) Paul Martin has been paying off our debt (nat as agressively as I would like), Bush no.
3) Paul Martin has had trade surpluses, Bush, trade deficits
4) Paul Martin Budget surpluses, Bush Budget deficits
5) Paul Martin is little crook, Bush is a big time crook
6) Paul MArtin wants our handguns, Bush wants to sell them to us


Face it both Paul Martin and Bush suck farts out of dead seaguls, but given a choice I'd choose Martin over Bush, Martin may be an idiot, but Bush is freaking retard.

Are you sure you're allowed to bash Dear Leader like this?

Wait... so, if you were an American, you'd be a liberal? 'Cause Bush is on the conservative side of the isle.

VW: updated to say "after their countries next election" which is what I meant - dumb finger brain interface!

Mr. Bump: Aren't most of those Jean Chretiens accomplishments as PM?

Robert: Sorry if you feel I bashed Paul Martin in this.

Grybo and Robert: I don't think Pale meant this post as a Bush bash, I think it was to point out how hippo-critical our Canadian Liberals are - they hate Bush sooo much, yet fail to realize their leader is so similar...

I don't think Pale's ever been accused as being a liberal!

Zorph: "3) Paul Martin has had trade surpluses, Bush, trade deficits"

Ummmm, maybe our surplus has to do with their deficit?

Also/Pale/Gyrobo - CPC (roughly) = Democrats. We are waaaayyyyy left of the Republicans, likely because some time in the 60s/70s, we took a hard turn.
