If Harper was black, they would be twins

According to Harper on his CBC interview last night, he and Obama are exactly the same and their 33 minute leader to leader meeting was much more special than Ignatieffs 30 minute meeting. Not to mention that Obama calls him Stephen.

We’re both middle-aged guys from middle-class backgrounds with young families, Harper said. There's a kind of conversation you can have about issues in that context that you can only have with another leader; perspectives and concerns that only each other can really understand. It's not just about what are our policies, but why you think the way you do, what are your hopes and aspirations for your own family and ultimately for your country.

Well not exactly the same Steve, the majority of Americans agree with Obama’s hopes and aspirations for their country. Up here the majority of Canadians don’t agree with yours.

Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
