Thread Name: Quebec City Protest - Part 2
Subject: RE: Quebec City Protest - Part 2
A year or two ago when that guy in Prince Edward Island whacked our Canadian Prime Minister in the gob with a pie, Toronto radio station CFRB had serious discussions, asking listeners if the Royal Canadian Mounted Mickey Mouse Police should carry machine guns so that they could shoot people who get too close to our PM. (CFRB used to be dominated by irritating rightwing airheads but they've recently balanced it off by hiring a few leftwing airheads.)

Callers to the phone-in show pointed out that history might have been different if Oswald had whacked Kennedy with a cream pie. One caller pointed out that, if the assailant had been armed with a donut, he wouldn't have gotten within ten paces of the Prime Minister before one of the cops would have disarmed him and eaten the donut.
