The selling of the prime minister

Via Impolitical comes the news that Harper has hired former White House spokesmen Ari Fleischer and Mike McCurry to help him get more facetime on US network TV.
Yeah, I know, just go read her post.

Just wanted to add here that the longer version of the vid clip provided by Impolitical showing Ari defending Bush's record just one month ago contains this extraordinary claim from Ari at the end :
"After September 11, having been hit once, how could we take a chance that Saddam might not strike again?"
By comparison, selling Harper should be a piece of yellow cake for Ari.

I guess Cheney wasn't available?

He should hire a real salesman, Rod Blagojevich.

Is it legal for the PMO to keep the salaries paid to these spinners secret? I, for one, would like to know.

So does this mean that Harper's gonna get to be on the Glenn Beck Show? 'Cause I'd pay money to see that... :P
