Come on, now. Harper's no chicken

Stephen Harper is campaigning in a bubble.

He can't face audiences that haven't been pre-screened.

He's keeping the press away and limiting access.

His handlers won't let him risk an unscripted moment.

And he's pussied out of debating. But really -- where's the challenge in calling him a chicken? I think we can do better ... 

And no, I'm not suggesting he's a chickenhawk either ...


  1. He set himself up as a chicken the moment he started the campaign with "the sky is falling [read: evil socialist/separatist coalition]" mantra.

    The other parties should definitely remind the electorate of his being brought down on contempt and perhaps bring out the Harper chestnut, "Not a leader".

  2. hi OB...I admit it's not very challenging to portray Harper as a chicken, but it sure is a lot of fun. And he's definitely a shmuck... ;)

  3. Excellent! Perhaps Mr. Harper should be nicknamed "Foghorn."
