This is good, fun campaigning, laughing off Republicans revelling in ignorance... This is the kind of stuff where they can't paint him as elitist (although they're trying), and where he tells Americans, "I'm not here to play games, to play politics: I'm serious and I'm here to lead the country". This is gold stuff.

So in a state of procrastination, I came across this article [thestar.com] by James Travers entitled "Harper trying to market alternative universe" about the Conservatives' Clean Air Act. Somewhere in there, Travers called Rona Ambrose Harper's minister of pollution.

There is a long tradition in leftist literature to disentangle ministry names from their doublespeak, such as calling the minister of defense the minister of war, but it's a rare sight to find such a literary device in a mainstream newspaper such as the Star. The title of the article is also quite striking.

I mean, the Star is almost as Liberal as the Toronto Sun is Conservative, but that's still quite impressive to see this from a newspaper that pretends to objectivity, unlike the Sun.
