Yesterday’s post about Accordion City’s Peter Griffin-esque mayor, Rob Ford, hit 20,000 pageviews and climbing thanks to a link from BoingBoing, the long-time 800-pound gorilla of the blogosphere. Thanks to my friend and former coworker Cory Doctorow for the link!
Yesterday’s post also introduced a lot of people, most of whom live outside Canada, to Mary Walsh’s character-within-a-character on the current events satire program This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Marg Delahunty playing Marg: Princess Warrior.
The CBC were quick to note that the Rob Ford 911 incident has put the Marg: Princess Warrior character in the spotlight, and they’ve assembled a montage of Marg’s greatest hits, which you can see in the video above. In it, you’ll see her quick-hit interviews with a number of Canadian politicians and one hockey commentator: Jean Chretien, Stephen Harper, Stephane Dion, Lucien Bouchard, Joe Clark, Ralph Klein, Don Cherry and Paul Martin.
