Jesse Hirsh on Rick Mercer

“Contrast this with our primary political satirist, Rick Mercer, and you can see why the Harper government is able to be as arrogant and aloof as it has. Rather than really go after the political establishment, Mercer seems more interested in kissing their ass.”

    Calling mercer an establishment kiss ass does not mean he supports Harper. Rather it means he’s too scared to really rock the boat as it would threaten his livelihood. In printing an op-ed in the Globe and Mail Mercer shows he’s an establishment kiss-ass. He’s pretty quiet and useless on Twitter.

    You’re an idiot .Mercer has been very critical of Harper’s Tories.
