Dave Ng is a scientist, not a political scientist, and doesn’t actually know too much about the candidates, but decides to review them anyway (First up: Stephen Harper).

That would go something like this:

STEPHEN HARPER: Voting for a harpist would be cool. I mean, I’m no classical musician, but that Stephen Harper seems downright magical on the harp – a real virtuoso. His fingers just seem to glide over the strings. His technique and speed are unmatched, and his concentration, you can see it in his eyes. It’s like he’s Eddie Van Halen, but on the harp, and with a sweater vest I guess.

Well, it’s election time, and I probably fit in that category where I know a bit, but probably not as much as I need to about the candidates. So as a public service, I’m going to have a little fun and review each of the candidates myself as if I know nothing about them. More importantly (plus hopefully, a bait to cull some much needed comments to this blog), I’d like to hear what you think about Mr. Stephen Harper.

Should we vote for him? Why? Or why not? Thumbs up? Thumbs down? Leave some comments, serious or otherwise. Links about his good or bad deeds would also be good.
