Rick Mercer: Speaker Is 'Useless' And It's Time To Fire Him

Rick Mercer has a modest proposal.

Since the Conservatives don't seem to be interested in answering questions with anything other than "We stand with Israel," Mercer says there isn't any point in having a Speaker of the House at all. Might as well just fire him and save the cost of his salary, staff, car, driver and home.

"We replace the Speaker with a bag of flour with a smiley face drawn on the front with a sharpie. What's the worst thing that could happen? Questions will go unanswered rudeness will prevail?"

Vintage Mercer.
