Stephen Harper, with halo
How can anyone not burst out laughing, listening to the three press agents of the three dominant cross-Canada parties, each one oh so innocent, each explaining how they would not be the ones to start using negative advertisements and smear tactics (but since the others already had ...), each sticking solidly on message -- and thus not one of whom even comes close to answering the interviewer's actual questions?

Of such things are elections made.

(The photograph by Tom Hanson of Conservative party leader Stephen Harper is not photoshopped, but is the result of a chance interaction of a background basketball hoop, caught by a gifted photographer.)
