Canadian Justice?

OK, given the title of this post you're probably expecting a diatribe about how somebody was dealt with unfairly by the Canadian legal system. WRONG! I'm using the word "justice" as a synonym for judge.

This morning, the "short list" of candidates being considered by President Obama to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court of the United States was released. One of those being considered is Jennifer Granholm, the Governor of Michigan, shown here in full politician mode:

In addition to being the Governor of Michigan, Ms. Granholm is--wait for it--a Canadian! As set out in her Wikipedia biography (, she was born in Vancouver.

To heck with all this crap about appointing "the first Latino justice"--how about "the first Canadian justice" instead!
