The Many Faces of Stephen Harper
Oh boy. Colour me purple. I see that some professor has finally figured out what I've known all along.
Stephen Harper employs a small army of people to try to make him look pretty.
How many times, for example, have we seen a less-than-flattering photo of the Prime Minister in a newspaper? One in which he is downcast or aloof or sitting slouched, as he often is, in the House of Commons? Although Mr. Harper is a reticent man, not given to smiling, notice the great number of photos you see of him sporting a wide grin.
Journalism is supposed to reflect reality, but if Mr. Harper is ever angry, we’d never know it. His photo presentation is a propagandist’s dream – and it is not by accident.
And although that's not exactly news, for never has a Canadian leader been so ugly and so vain, this is definitely alarming eh?
“Through the ‘drip, drip, drip’ of digital visuals, they may be winning a subliminal priming battle,” he writes. Editors are looking at these photos, one Tory strategist told him, and “over time this can frame how they perceive the PM.”
So I just want to tell the professor don't worry I'm working on the problem...
I've been working on it for a long time...
And I intend to continue portraying Great Ugly Leader as he really is, in all his vanity and depravity.
Until he looks like Mitt Romney did the other day, pumping gas in La Jolla, California...
For that's what a Con loser should look like eh? Poised between mooching a cigarette or trying to steal your wallet.
And oh yeah, I'm doing it for Canada, but I'm also doing it for myself.
For the idea of living in a country where democracy is a farce, scientists are muzzled, the truth is what they say it is, and Big Brother is PRETTY, is simply too much to bear.
And since I am not alone.
I know that as long as I keep laughing at them, I might yet survive this nightmare.
And ain't this the prettiest picture?
