Harper’s Americanization of Canada Continues

8 Jun ’08

I’ve lost count of the number of electoral imports Harper’s hustled in across the border. It’s become more of a personal homage to Shrub, I think – but in any event, Harper’s admiration for Republican government and electioneering has become embarrassing – and the deeper his mentors sink into their own muck, the more determined he seems to be to imitate them. The latest is more U.S. style “attack ads” – on the Liberal’s environmental policies. News of the campaign has been leaked to the press because the inflammatory character of the ads will itself generate attention that will spread news of the ads better than they could themselves. Is anyone else tired of our Banana Republicans? We need a Barack Obama of our own.
