Quote of the Day

Ilya Shapiro (TheDailyCaller):

It’s refreshing to see Canadians display more patriotism than they have traditionally: it’s embarrassing for a country to define itself as being merely “not the United States”
Indeed. Though I wonder if Shapiro was familiar with Canada's $116 million "Own the Podium Campaign" (Bloomberg) that news commentators have been framing as bringing our medal count to at least parity to the Americans. Of course now that the Americans beat Canada in hockey for the first time since 1960, personally I'm just glad that they're actually looking at spending money on useful things as opposed to doubling down.
