the newest Beatle

Prime Minister Harper performs at the National Arts Centre Gala on Saturday. Here's CTV's take on it. What do you think?

I'm not sure if he just made the biggest mistake of his career or the best one. Good sport though.

I'm sure the pundits will tell us (what to think - what they'd like us to think...). In fact last night on CTV various experts were already weighing in. Mostly the reaction was positive although always mixed with a note of rancor. One guy said Harper had better watch out how many ways he tries to define himself - as the public will get confused. That analyst is obviously not familiar with the compelling concept of the complex character.

Way to go, Mr. Prime Minister! -E.

YAH Stephen! Cool as a cucumber whether he's being laughed at or applauded. And not a bad singer either. I'm somewhat familiar with the technical requirements for singing even that well while sitting at a piano. Dude!

Thanks for posting this, Violet. One of my fave PMs in Canadian history, and you're certainly right about the complex character aspect.

Tons more respectable than necromancy, IMHO.

Thanks Cathi-Lyn and Sonia! Yes, sitting at a piano, playing and singing is not for the faint of heart. Love that 'How Trudeau' Sonia! :)
