Conservative spokesman Dunning Kruger announced today that he is launching Cirque du Steve’s Freaks and Geeks, a new circus-style show that will combine fund-raising for conservative causes with getting the message to the grassroots in key ridings. [...]
“All right-thinking Canadians love a circus – just look at the polls,” said Kruger. “But they’re sick of Pepsi performer types from Quebec with their New Agey ‘foreign-cultures-are-more-spiritual-than-yours’ crap and their fairy costumes. What they want is to get back to the good old days of clapping seals, scary strongmen, hall of mirrors, bearded women, bad suits and creationists. Circus for the base is base circus, baby!”
Featured in the show are: Duffster, the Human Cannonball; Iggy, the Dancing Bear; tight-rope walker Big Tony C.; Vic Toews, the Human Pretzel; John Baird, the Human Hankey; Bev Oda as Humper the Clown; the Amazing Tazing Fantino; Peter Mack, trained to jump through burning hoops; bearded lady Jason Kenney; and more.

My virtual roomie fern hill discovered this brilliant website of Canadian political satire.
From one of UrNews items:
More? Oh yeah, babeee! Larry Cannon as MeeMoe the Mime! Reverend Knife-thrower Vellacott aka "Flak the Ripper". Rod Bruinooge in his Magical MASSIVE Kidney Suit! Helena Guergis on her flying trapeze!
And let's not forget the little people: Dimitri Soudas, elephant-poop-scooper extraordinaire! Flaming Regurgitator 'Fatwa' Flanagan!
As US circus founder P.T. Barnum (allegedly) said: "There's a sucker born every minute."
