    Colin Robertson says Chris Christie, Rudy Giuliani and Sarah Palin are likely on shortlist for next US ambassador to Canada. #cdnpoli #ctvpp

    You're going to send one of your craziest republican to be the ambassador to Canada.
    Do you hate us? That must be it. You want to start something? This will do it.

    Ambassador Palin has a nice ring to it.

    What's wrong? You don't like chick ambassadors?

    An extreme pushback from Canadians and politicians.

    "extreme pushback"?

    Don't tell me that Trudeau is going to go on a fashion strike and refuse to comb his hair until Ambassador Palin is fired.

    Sarah Palin doesn't want the job because she doesn't speak Canadian. Plus it's a job.
    The unhinged Rudy Giuliani will start a war with Canada.
    That leaves Christie. Go get em, big boy!

    Canadians very much hate Rudy and Sarah. Christie Is the least revolting. Still revolting though.

    Oh yes that would be frightening . . . if, that is, any U.S. citizen noticed.

    Yes but trolling Canada is a bit unsporting; shooting fish in a barrel and all that stuff.

    Personally I'd send Palin just because it'd make Trudeau's head explode.

    Sarah might get along well in Canada - after all it is next to Alaska!!! And she knows all about Canada because she can see it from her place!

    Just keep down the amount of yellow snow you are planning on selling to the Trump appointees - they might just work out what it really is

    I'm pretty sure we're allowed to refuse ambassadors.

    Sure and then what? I bet Trump would simply send nobody else. Pssst . . . and it wouldn't make a difference because ambassadors don't actually do a damn thing.

    You can shoot them on the spot if you like, you are (for now anyway) a sovereign nation. But this creates a diplomatic incident. Much like arresting the leader of a foreign country.

    Would the Canadians invite such an incident just because they dislike women?

    Christie's got enough blubber to survive the conditions.

    NAH!! It is going to be more fun watching the Canadians pulling the legs, arms and every other part of the poor bewildered souls as they convince that line up of oxygen thieves that in Canada

    1, You will have to bring your own toilet paper because the maple leaves are too scratchy
    2, Why you have thanksgiving in a different month to Americans
    3. The difference between ham and bacon http://www.theloop.ca/americans-have-some-pretty-ridiculous-questions-about-canada/

    I think my favourite dumb American Question was

    "Where do you buy Totem Pole seeds?"

    http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2014/06/24/tourist-questions-canada-americans_n_5499973.html

    Just think of it as four years never ending entertainment

    Mate Canada is like Australia in one regard


    Lots of places to hide bodies

    Christie or Giuliani? Sure, I wouldn't mind them as ambassadors for the US. Palin? Please God no. There's already the Americans-are-intellectually-challenged stereotype, Palin would just make it worse IMO.

    Have you seen Giuliani recently? He's lost his marbles. While defending Trump he claimed there was no terror attacks prior to Obama. I guess he "forgot" about 9/11.

    No. No Giuliani. Christie, ok.
