'He drinks espresso'

Rick Mercer talks politics, the Mercer Report and those ads.

“Have you gone to the website?” Mercer asks. “They have stuff in there like ‘He lives in a building, not in a house. He drinks espresso. Can regular Canadians understand a guy like that?’I mean, espresso? Really, it’s nothing to do with anything except the guy is well-educated and well-travelled. I don’t think Stephen Harper will be upset if his son is so academically inclined that he can study at Harvard and then could possibly teach at Harvard. I don’t think anybody would say ‘Oh my God, we’ve raised a terrible child. What a terrible road he’s gone down.’ I would think they’d be proud of that. It’s just a bad message.”
