Harper Blandly Goes Where Others Have Boldly Gone Before
In Canada, we are horribly starved for attention, and it’s particularly sad because we try so hard to be a good nation. We have clean streets and mountains and ethical workplaces and lots of parades for gay people. It seems we can do everything right only to be overlooked, until all of a sudden something truly worth overlooking pops into international cautiousness and we’re standing as the focus of vigorous moral debate, getting hit in the face by trade restrictions here and self-righteous indignation there and Paul McCartney hates us -hates us- now and we’re not sure what we did but pretty sure we’re not sorry and in the midst of all the noise one has to wonder, why?
They’re just fucking seals aren’t they?
Here is Stephen Harper in Nunavut, forcing himself to eat seal meat. Or maybe not… I mean, this is the guy who pocketed a communion wafer. For a grown man and Head of Government, Harper does have funny habit of hiding the yucky food and hoping no one notices. After this photo was taken I’m pretty sure that while McKay and Co. were gingerly putting the meat in their mouths, closing their eyes and politely swallowing, Harper turned to an aid and asked if he could just have noodles with butter. Michaelle really fucked him on this one. She had to be cool about it. She sat in front of some carcass, tore off some heart, got photographed actually putting it in her mouth, and licking the blood off her fingers. Then she sat her badass down and enjoyed the flood of press. It all must have left Harper to wonder, as I’m sure he often does, why he isn’t more popular. I feel for you Steve. Hopefully this picture will prove to everyone out there that you are totally super serious about solidarity with the North, even if you’re boring and can’t think of your own press stunt.
