I am really nervous about posting this, because I know that Julian Assange is a polarizing figure, but I have to admit that I am completely addicted to WikiLeaks. In fact I'm so addicted that I contemplated calling in sick to work tomorrow so that I can continue to pour over these classified documents.
I don't want to undermine the importance of the majority of the information in the cables, but since my last few posts have included commentary on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Saved By The Bell, I thought I'd take a light hearted approach to this subject.
As I was sifting through the massive amounts of information in this latest leak I came across a cable with the following subject line: Primetime Images of US-Canada Border Paint US In An Increasingly Negative Light.
Y'all have to read this. I can't believe it's someone's job to watch Canadian television and report back to the Secretary of State:

Update: WikiLeaks is no longer available. Go here: http://22.214.171.124/cable/2008/01/08OTTAWA136.html
I also can't believe there's a sitcom called Little Mosque on the Prairie.
