"I don't want an election, I believe that is best for us, and it's best for the country"
Interesting that country comes after self-interest. A minor point, but an insight into the thought process.
On polls, Harper typically dismisses them as though he doesn't pay attention, but then when the Ontario numbers are introduced, he suddenly has some keen knowledge:
"what are less reliable than national polls are regional polls, which have huge margins of error, and there are different polls out there, with different results"Of note, as Duffy was reading the Strategic Counsel numbers, showing him well ahead of Dion, Harper tried very hard to wipe the smug smirk off his face, lest he admit his does care.
From the bizarre column, referring to Bill Gates, Harper comes out with this:
"My wife calls the world's sexiest man". Harper asks why? "When a man has that much money he's sexy"
Deep Mrs. Harper, deep.
