Behold the Blue Knight, Stephen Harper

Apparently, the PM is restoring “liberal-democratic resolve against tyranny”

If you’ve noticed our prime minister popping up in the U.S. media with curious frequency, you’re not the only one. Two interviews with CNN. Now one with the Wall Street Journal. What’s Stephen Harper up to? According to the WSJ, nothing less that picking up the conservative flag amid a worldwide vacuum of right-wing leadership. Harper, we are told, is restoring “liberal-democratic resolve against tyranny.” Sounds impressive, but we might have added: “trying desperately to close the gap in approval ratings between himself and a formidable new rival, Michael Ignatieff, whose perceived strength is foreign policy.”
