Well, speaking of the arts …
While people were milling around looking at contemporary art in Toronto Saturday night …
Prime minister Stephen Harper made a guest appearance at the National Arts Centre’s gala in Ottawa.
And this is what ensued:
I’m sure a bunch of you had already seen this. But I just finally watched it today.
And, um, yeah.
I really don’t know what to say about this. Except that my right eye has started to twitch and I think I’m ready for a lie-down.
That might be completely coincidental.
But if you remember what our esteemed prime minister said about the arts when he campaigned during last year’s election – and the reaction it elicited – you’ll know why I find this a tad “whiskey-tango-foxtrot”.
But please, discuss amongst yourselves.
