I didn't know whether to post this in Politicum or HWC forum, but I figured, it's Candadian politics, so HWC is appropriate...
To make a long story short, a comedian tried to ask the Prime Minister a few questions at a press conference and she got carted off by security...
But instead of a jail cell, Hall (the comedian) was surprised with a brief one-on-one chat with Harper (Mr. PM).
"OK, that was a bumpy start to the second part of our relationship," Hall joked, "but it was kind of sexy, too. Girl doesn't get arrested by a blue-eyed man very often."
To which Harper replied, "You like handcuffs?"
"Should I like handcuffs?" Hall responded, eyebrows raised.
The incident marked one of several lighter moments during this first week of campaigning ahead of the Oct. 14 vote.
Stephen Harper had a chance during a campaign stop at a Winnipeg produce terminal on Tuesday to show his seedier side when the Conservative leader was asked what vegetable he would be....
In a rarely seen moment, Harper was temporarily at a loss for words.
"I have never been asked that question before, and I have a feeling I can't win by answering it," he said.
Harper turned to ponder his options amid the backdrop of produce stacked behind him, scanning the boxes of cucumbers, carrots and tomatoes, then opted to amend the scope of the question with his reply.
"I would choose, if I had to, instead to be a fruit," Harper said with a cheeky smile, drawing laughter from the audience. "Just what I am â€” sweet and colourful."
Harper's communications staff later noted they'd failed to brief him on the vegetable question ahead of time, but enjoyed his answer nonetheless, the CBC's Paul Hunter reported from the event.
This coming from our right-wing, homophobic, PM.
Though it's a tad more subtle than the photo they posted earlier this week on their party web site of a puffin poo'ing on the head of the leader of the opposition.
