Harper's brain on drugs
The Tories gave up any coyness about bringing on an election by debuting ads in prime time Sunday to coincide, predictably, with the premiere of the fall television season. What timing. Catch the dude next to the 4X4 extolling the virtues of all things Harper? Brush-cut gushes: "Steven Harper's a straight-up guy." Yup, Stevie's in it for all the right reasons - that's why he's holding Parliament hostage. Didn't notice any people of colour in the Tories' lily-white version of Canada. What a strange face to present of this country. "I've never been so proud to be Canadian," says Moustache Man in the suit.
