On this Anything Anything Anything: a TV show face-off, Scarborough shooting questions, and the doability of rape jokes.

Marg Delahunty and the CBC were too quick to put words in Rob Ford’s 911 call, and Harper hasn’t really undermined gay marriage in Canada (or, “why nobody gets it and everyone’s an idiot”).

Jon Bershad has also pondered the conservative comedy conundrum, and Gilleen stole some thinking from him.
