Delayed only momentarily by the need to change into some dry panties and have a quick smoke, Blogging Tory "JoJo" pens a gushing paean to regular guy Stephen the Corpulent:
Stephen Harper of the ‘Regular Canadians’ class
While Michael Ignatieff describes himself as a member of the elite “Political Class”, Canada’s Prime Minister continues to prove that he’s just plain folks.
Yesterday Stephen Harper dropped by the K-W area to watch his son Ben play in a volleyball championship tournament:
“This is just a dad here watching his son play volleyball,” said Harper’s spokesperson, Andrew MacDougall. “We’re just trying to keep this quiet.”
Harper's behaviour differs drastically, of course, from what we can only imagine would have happened if it had been Michael Ignatieff, who would undoubtedly have waited until midway through the third game, then uttered a blood-curdling shriek and launched himself onto the court where he would have ripped out and feasted on the still-beating heart of a 12-year-old blonde cheerleader while howling the praise of the Dark One, Cthulhu. Because that's just what Liberals do.
Following the volleyball game, regular guy Stephen Harper was quickly chauffeured back to the airport, where he caught a private government jet back to Ottawa just in time to perform another piano recital with the backing of the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra. Because that's just what regular guys do. According to his personal spokesperson.
