Christina Pedersen Gets an F(-Bomb)

For years, Canadian comedy troupe the Royal Canadian Air Farce have been firing chicken cannons and F-Bombing worthy targets for scorn on their annual New Years' Eve TV special. Past targets have included former President George W. Bush (chosen as top target many times during his Presidency), and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman. This year, as chosen by their viewers, they've included a special target -- skip ahead to about 41 minutes in, and you will see. She didn't quite beat out a haggle of corrupt mayors, but it's damn close. Our national healing is officially complete -- thank you, Air Farce! (N.B. -- The video is Canada only...oops!)
