Headlines of the overly panicky

Many people are concerned about the U.S. Ambassador's words about candidates (okay, Martin) using the United States as an electoral straw man, to be kicked about for the purpose of scoring points. I'm far less concerned, since the United States government is welcome to say what it wishes; likewise, we are equally able to ignore the advice.

What concerns me right now is the headline I found on this morning's National Post: U.S. 'intervention' decried.

Notwithstanding the quotation marks, the comments by Ambassador Wiltfong Wolfgang Wilkins can hardly be called an "intervention". If the United States intervenes in a Canadian election, you'll be able to tell by the tanks in the streets and the Diebold voting machines.
