I share the this view over the attack by Harper on Navdeep Bains. I can't remember when I've seen one short political event raise so much hell in the Canadian blogosphere.
It was so bad, that even some of Harper's supporters felt they had to comment negatively on his actions. Although, I would suggest that characterizing Harper as "kind of a prick" is understating things slightly. He's more of a complete prick.
If there was any surprize at all yesterday it is that Harper did this not as a member of the Opposition, not while leading a majority government, but while at the head of the weakest minority government in Canadian history.
It demonstrates something which has always been present in Harper. He is a bad-tempered, mean-spirited piece of work and when he's not getting his way, he is unable to control himself.
Haven't we always known that?
