Steven Harper Hates Me... But I Love Him

The estimable Mr. Martin churns up familiar dirt with his assessment that Prime Minister Harper is gaining favour with the media because he treats them with disdain. This is a surprise? Anyone who has been through high school understands the dynamic -- the wannabes flock around the cool kid (or, OK, in this case the kid with power) and want to be his friend but the more he shuns them, the harder they try to be his friend. One of Mr. Dion's failings is that he wants to be loved, to ride on the back of the school bus, but he is a decidedly front of the bus, first to answer kid.
