Man Of The Year

Sometimes media hagiographies are embarrassing and disgraceful, such as Alexandre Trudeau's recent love letter to Fidel Castro in the Toronto Star.

Sometimes they're just hilariously inaccurate:

A prestigious British business magazine owned by the Financial Times has named Premier Dalton McGuinty its world "personality of the year."

Foreign Direct Investment magazine, which is publishing its August-September issue today, has bestowed the honour upon McGuinty for making Ontario a more business-friendly jurisdiction by promoting research and innovation.

Praising him as "outgoing and upbeat in that very North American way," the five-year-old publication hails his "infectious enthusiasm" and notes that "should Ontarians run short on energy, they could always plug in to their high-octane leader."

Hm, that is EXACTLY what I thought.

Oh, and ask the parents of autistic kids; they might think he is a "personality" as well
