Stephen Harper: Serial Plagiarizer.

You've heard about the time one of Harper's main speechwriters cribbed a pro-Iraq speech from the Australian PM a few years ago. But, did you know he also stole from his fellow right-wing fuck, Mike Harris?

Check this shit out.

Harris, December '02:
Thinking about things from a new and different perspective is never easy. It takes courage, conviction and the strength to know that in taking a new and innovative course, you are making change for the better. ... Genuine leaders are the ones who do the right thing.

Harper, February '03:
Thinking about things from a new and different perspective is not about reading the polls and having focus group tests. It is never easy because it takes courage, conviction and the strength to know that taking a new and innovative course is going to make change for the better. Genuine leaders are the ones who do the right thing.

I wouldn't trust Steve Harper farther than I could throw him with one hand.

I'd love to take the screws to him any chance I get, but I'd say that's the fault of the speech writers, not the man himself.
