Stephen Harper’s walk on the beach.
This morning, I saw this article in the Canadian edition of Huffington Post: Stephen Harper On The Beach: Prime Minister Takes An Awkward Walk In Colombia. In it, there was a photo of Stephen Harper walking down the beach in bare feet with his pantlegs rolled up.
My thoughts, in order, were:
- Wow, that looks really dorky. I’m almost embarrassed for the guy.
- But, because it looks so awkward, that can’t be a staged photo-op.
- Good gosh! Maybe the Prime Minister Stephen “Roboshot” Harper actually did something on the spur of the moment.
But then I took another look at the photo. What are the chances that secret service guy spontaneously commandeered that neon-coloured dune buggy – or alternately that this is some random guy who likes to dress like the Men in Black whilst dune-buggying?
