Stephen Harper's Surprising Canadian Victory

In an article here, the Washington Post points out that Canada's new Prime Minister is definitely not a liberal. Paul Martin, outgoing PM, has said Stephen Harper's agenda is "drawn from the extreme right in the United States." The article describes his favoring the Iraq war, opposing Kyoto on global warming, and being a social conservative as right-wing; but no mention is made of his economics. It will be interesting to see what he does with the behemoth to the north.

By the way, did you know that Gerhard Schroeder is now a "agent" for Russian President Vladimir Putin? I wonder what the job description is.
