You've probably heard about the PM satire web site:

paulmartintime.ca

Not to be confused with the official (and humourless) Martin site:

paulmartintimes.ca

Apparently Martin's crack team of handlers don't have much of a sense of humour or even much common sense. They actually threatened to sue the 3 kids who made the site 3 days before x-mas, thus giving them instant fame.

Well, there is also a one-hour satirical documentary about Martin going on a cross-Canada tour just in time for the expected spring elections. It's called

Waiting for Martin

A kind of Canadian Roger and Me where Paul Martin is "Roger" and former NDP candidate David Bernans is "me".

If you live near Ottawa, you might be able to catch a sneak preview on January 24.

Murray Dobbin's book, Paul Martin: CEO for Canada? and informative articles on rabble and elsewhere are a good way to learn about the real PM. But to reach a larger audience we need to be really creative and fun. If George W. was Canada's PM it would be too easy to poke fun. Still, Paul has his own weak spots.

Anybody feel inspired?

This looks great. I'll be at the Montreal launch, though the website doesn't mention time or place yet.
