What’s that sound? It’s the sound of our Singing Prime Minister, setting the stage for the next election with yet another outburst of song, this time at the CPC Christmas Orgy. For those who like to live nauseatingly, here’s MC Steve’s version of “Sweet Caroline”… click it, you are powerless to resist:
Vodpod videos no longer available.
And there’s more (including a rendition of “The Seeker” that was far too disturbing to post here). Harper got right into it, performing five(5) songs for the appreciative partisan crowd. Oh well. Why not? The people at the party apparently liked it, and even Harper himself momentarily seemed slightly less reptilian than usual. And as I remarked after Harper’s first Outburst of Song last year, I suspect it can’t hurt his image to be seen doing such Average Guy things as tickling the ivories and singing, slightly off-key, just like we all get roped into doing sooner or later at this time of year.
But wait: did someone say “off-key”?:
Upstaged yet again by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who took to the stage Wednesday night at the Conservative caucus Christmas party, the Liberals were up early grumpily emailing reaction. “Not even one song in French,” a senior Ignatieff official told The Globe and Mail on Thursday morning.
It’s just baffling, baffling I tell you, that the Liberals have so much trouble getting the average Canadian to warm up to them.
UPDATE: And not to be outdone by western capitalist pig-dogs… Careful, Harpie: next time you get together with Vlad he might start boasting about how his piano is bigger, stronger and faster than yours. (h/t SQ in the comments)
