Re: Right wing hypocrisy.
The really scary thing is they're considering sending Sarah Palin as ambassador to Canada. Can we build a wall around the embassy? Please?
There is already a wall around the embassy. Those ugly-looking bollards around it are solid steel, go four meters into the bedrock, and are supposed to be able to stop a main battle tank. The exterior windows are 6-inch thick armoured glass, and are specced to stop a direct-fire shell from the same main battle tank. In fact, the whole building was designed by somebody with a bit of a fetish about main battle tanks.
And in case you are wondering, it wasn't the Orange One: this is how America built all its embassies for the past 20 years: warm, friendly, and distinctly imperial with a light militaristic twist.
