Enabling a fetish, Canadian-style

I almost fell off my chair laughing this morning when I read that the Canadian military is making Rick Mercer an honorary colonel.

In recent seasons, I've started to get a bit tired of Mercer's "Look at me in a tank/plane/helicopter" routine. While his advocacy for a better-funded military is doubtless appreciated, these segments have more than a little touch of military fetishism to them. And now the Canadian Forces are making him an honorary colonel? He must be tickled pink.
