‘First off, who doesn’t love a guy whose name contains the prefix ‘Sir”
Now I’m pretty sure a second sign is that someone at VICE wrote an actually funny article about it, and how (sarcastically) JT isn’t all that:
Macdonald was known for showing up to work hammered and going on days-long benders. His poison of choice was whisky, which he binged on often, sometimes rendering himself completely incoherent. (…)
King regularly held séances with mediums to contact his dead mother, several dead dogs, and the dead US President Franklin Roosevelt. (…)
A scrappy, badass underdog who, when confronted by a heckling protester in 1996, put the man in a chokehold and threw him to the ground, breaking one of his teeth. The move was later nicknamed the Shawinigan Handshake and Chrétien was so unapologetic about it, he continued to perform it in jest for years to come. (…)
Harper started out his political career handsome (think brunette Jeffrey Dahmer) and is now a bonafide silver fox.
His tendencies to gag civil servants, strip the country’s ability to collect data, invoke racist, wedge politics during the election, stifle the press, and control every aspect of government with a vice-like grip have probably turned a few people off. But how can you stay mad at those steely blue eyes?
That’s to say nothing of his musical talents. Harper is frontman for the band the Van Cats—a play on “vingts-quatre”, the French word for “24” as in the PM’s address 24 Sussex, ’cause his pun game is on point like that.
