Who's going to have the nads ovaries to try this?


The setup:

Harper's spokespeople threatened to cancel the press conference if, at any point in the day, a Canadian reporter shouts out a question without being invited to do so.

White House reporters habitually bark out queries during photo opportunities with the president.

But nobody had better dare pulling such a stunt in Harper's office.

"If you do (ask a question), the photo op will immediately cease," Teneycke said.

I so desperately want some reporter to think, "Fuck it," and shout out, "Excuse me, Mr Harper! Is it true that you're such a cowardly, gutless, pants-wetting, narcissistic, pompous little shit that you'd cancel this entire press conference if someone in the media so much as asks you a question?"

The next few seconds of awkward silence would be priceless.

CanWest reporters should go for broke - it's going to declare bankruptcy any day now anyway.

The typical Harper gamesmanship is priceless. They still don't get it! Such boneheads!

Watch the few minutes with Iggy at the airport spun into the most important part of the visit. Watch it go into overdrive if Obama decides to delay his flight even a few extra minutes to talk. Of all the planes flying today, I think his is one that can delay at will.

Recalling Obama's comments on his meetings between Election and Inauguration, I'm sure Iggy will remind everyone:

"We only have one Prime Minister at a time".

Most dogs I know are better socialized than that.

Heh. Wouldn't it be priceless if da prez himself initiated a scrum? Wonder what Harper would do then? I can't see the Secret Service allowing him to hustle Obama out of the room by the elbow...
