Rob Anders watch

From a Calgary Herald column about Stephen Harper's recently carefully-staged photo-op in Calgary, a few amusing Rob Anders observations:

Preening in apparent ecstasy is the magnificently muscled Calgary West MP Rob Anders, who poses everywhere while his riding assistant takes one photo after another. A convert to power lifting, Anders appears to be busting for a good clean and jerk.

He doesn't go quite as far as he did the day before at a Sports Hall of Fame event, when he had his photo taken at the podium even though he didn't speak.

Forgive me, but I just find the idea of Anders posing here and there while his assistant dutifully takes pictures amusing. Maybe he's working on a coffee table book?

Must be a Conservative from Calgary thing...Pierre Poilievre does the same damn thing here in Nepean-Carleton.

What a smarmy prick.

Well, he didn't exercise where most needed - between his ears.

There's something creepy about this preening stuff.
