Kinsella named Speaker of Senate

I caught this headline [see title] at the Globe and Mail. One can only imagine the craziness that ran through my mind at the thought of Warren Kinsella being the Speaker of the Senate. Not that I would have had a problem with that. I would have had a problem with Harper appointing another unelected to the Senate and then giving them a job such as Speaker. I would have liked the fact that Warren would have made the senate more interesting and possibly even relevant. Too bad it's only Noel Kinsella they were talking about... I guess the Senate is still boring and useless...
