Rick Mercer, of Codco/This Hour Has 22 Minutes/Talking To Americans fame, now has a blog, which you can get as an RSS feed for your LJ friends page. This is, in my view, the best thing to hit LJ's syndicated feeds section since Savage Love. And in fact, now that I think of it, I suppose Rick Mercer is kind of like the Dan Savage of Canadian political commentary, so I guess there's a parallel there.

Sample from a recent post:
Okay, I know I’m a cynical prick about these things, but when Bob Geldof tells Canada’s Prime Minister to stay at home and skip the G8 summit, are we not supposed to laugh our asses off? Did a memo go out that said aging rock stars are setting the agenda at the G8 now? Would the world be a better place if the Bob Geldofs were running it? I think so. Rock stars know a lot more than just where to score the coke, you know.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t think people like Sir Bob have a place on the world stage. If I was to hold an international symposium on getting off junk, or the perils of autoerotic asphyxiation, I would expect a healthy number of rock stars with royal titles to take part in it...
edited to add a few commas here and there, which Mercer for some reason seems to be allergic to)
