Stephen Harper and the Portrait of a Tyrant
As you know Stephen Harper hasn't been seen in public since he was crushed and humiliated by the Son of Trudeau.
And nobody knows where and in what closet he might be hiding in, until the Duffy trial is over.
But no doubt he must be wondering about his legacy, and hoping that Ezra Levant sells enough of these.
And that this portrait of him doesn't become the one that history will remember...
The one that's so popular it has set off a bidding war.
When former bureaucrat Danielle Potvin first laid eyes on Stephen Harper’s completely nude body, she knew she had to take him home.
“It’s the best piece of fine art in Canada,” said Potvin. She describes it as “audacious” and “so interesting.” “It’s such a strong image.”
Potvin originally bought the painting for $5,750. Now she’s being offered upwards of $12,000 for the piece.
Because it certainly is a...um... strong image, one that no decent person could ever forget.
It is the stuff of nightmares...
And it is so HIM.
The portrait of a tyrant.
Or the reflection of a mad emperor with no clothes.
As I tried to portray him for so long...
And the popularity of Emperor Haute Couture must be driving Harper CRAAAAZY.
Because if you remember, he's so vain he turned the lobby of the House of Commons into a portrait gallery to celebrate HIMSELF.
Citizens who really want a national portrait gallery in Ottawa can rest easy. The government already has one.
Photographs of Mr. Harper in various poses, at various sites, are hung throughout the private and cosy government lobby of the House of Commons.
And who can forget what a horrified Elizabeth May had to say about that?
"When you walk in the door, all you see are pictures of Stephen Harper," said Ms. May
"I'd say between every window, in every available space of the wall, at eye level, every available space has a photo of Stephen Harper."
"You've got photos of Stephen Harper, but not of previous prime ministers," she added.
So I can only imagine what a panic Stephen Harper must be in, as he huddles in his lonely closet...
Which also threatens to become one of the other images which by which history will remember him.
We'll make sure of that.
But yes, he was Emperor Haute Couture. He was a tyrant.
He was the mad emperor with no clothes.
He was our depraved Canadian Caligula...
So he can try to put lipstick on the judgement of history, with the help of the Con media.
But the portraits of a tyrant, made by the Canadians who survived his monstrous years in power, will endure.
And they will help condemn him...
