The inspiration for many of the doodles over at ffibs, come from the propaganda distributed by the PMO. Five years ago the Harper government started limiting access to Harper, reducing the number of questions that could be asked and controlling which pictures would released to the public, by barring photographers access to events, in an attempt I would assume, to conceal, his aversion to white hats, his goofy smile or other unflattering images.
For the past five years we have only seen posed, staged, choreographed, images of Harper, that his boys in short pants believed best reflected the message that they wanted to project. Described as "a natural evolution of political communication", a PMO minion back in 2009 stated "that the practice [of producing their own] pictures is intended to supplement the supply of images available for media as well as bloggers."
And for that I want to personally thank them, as I have had enjoyed many hours of entertainment scanning the posed shots of Harper speaking Yiddish to rabbis, walking down the street in New York city or learning about the disappearing arctic ice.
However the latest picture (above), of this year's northern tour, has left me speechless.
So if you have a caption for this picture that can explain what the hell they are doing, please enter it in the comments below. The winning (all) captions (if I get any) will be added to the next post at ffibs.
