Michael Ignatieff and his officials detect a pattern as their summer bus tour winds across the country: Stephen Harper’s cabinet ministers show up just before the Liberal Express makes a stop in a community.

They are good! Harper et. al. deservingly have a reputation for strategic genius.

In this unmarked drive-by of an article, an unnamed AP reporter lights up:
"Cheech & Chong's blunt advice for PM Harper: 'Wise up' on pot laws, man"
MONTREAL - Cheech and Chong have some blunt advice for Stephen Harper when it comes to Canada's marijuana's laws.
They say the prime minister should wise up to the public will, and pull his head out of George Bush's butt.
The celebrity tokers are miffed that Canadian authorities, after nearly decriminalizing pot a few years ago, have made a 180-degree policy shift that's led to a lot of recent pot busts.
A spokesman for the Prime Minister's Office wasn't immediately available to comment. (Presumably because he had better things to do - Danté)
Richard "Cheech" Marin and Tommy Chong are cultural icons when it comes to doper humour. The stoner counterculture act they created in the 1970s gained them legions of fans around the world.
Besides performing live, the duo have released several comedy albums and films and appeared in numerous TV shows. Marin was a regular in the cop drama "Nash Bridges" while Chong had a recurring role on "That '70s Show." They were in Montreal to host a show at the Just For Laughs Festival.
George Bush - no longer president, but still a good excuse for stoner leftists (and AP writers)!
