As if you needed another reason to think Stephen Taylor is awesome, here is a post of his slamming the television censors for stopping two obviously appropriate television commercials. The grounds? Harper must approve the use of his words and image at a, get this, public rally. Yeah, public rally, where there was no assumption of privacy, where the media was invited, where the content of the speech was in the public record, and so on.

Taylor posts both commercials, along with a couple of letters from the biofuels people, the Conservative government (which, to their great credit, appears to be as confused about this decision as the rest of us), and the people who stopped the commercials (who, apparently, either do not know that Stephen Harper is the Prime Minister, and not Premier, of Canada, or have no idea that "Premier" is not the right title to apply to Harper).
