Stephen Harper engages in human pastime of “dancing”

Stephen Harper engages in human pastime of “dancing”

First it was Michael Ignatieff dancing outside MuchMusic during Caribana. Now, from the Prime Minister’s trip to the arctic, we have Stephen Harper dancing with the locals in Inuvik. In the competition of who can look least awkward when they’re clearly out of their element, it’s possible that Harper managed to pull off the win here. We hope his programmers and technicians can repair any damage that his rhythmic swaying may have done to his parts. Hopefully, this will be the start of a new trend for federal leaders. Given Jack Layton‘s recent medical problems, maybe dancing is out for now—though we know he can sing. That leaves Gilles Duceppe among leaders with actual seats in parliament. Might we suggest Duceppe bust a move to Rick Astley’s hit 1988 single “Together Forever”?
