Rick Mercer on The Agenda

Rick Mercer talking with Steve Paikin about his role as a political satirist, being the “Jon Stewart of Canada,” and his new gig in the off-season writing a column for Macleans magazine.

By the way, here’s something I’ve thought for a long time…Wouldn’t Rick would be the perfect candidate to be the Governor General of Canada at some point in the future? I know that he doesn’t have an especially high opinion of that institution, but there’s probably nobody in this country who’s actually better “qualified” for the position than him in terms of having been to so many communities and experienced the wide diversity of Canada over the years.
