Is Stephen Harper The New 'Bush'?

"The ideology of the Iranian government is "evil," Prime Minister Stephen Harper says."
Reuters News Agency

I don't like the regime currently in power in Iran. I don't like 'fundamentalist' Islam nor Christianity when it is in control of a government. But for a sitting Prime Minister of Canada to label another government as 'evil', I have to wonder about his motives.

We know that Harper loved George Bush, both ideologically and as a fellow right winger. Bush used to throw around the 'evil' label at countries like Iran and North Korea when he was President. Most observers generally just rolled their eyes and attributed it to Bush's simplistic country bumpkin incompetence.

Harper sits in the front pew of his Christian Missionary Alliance church every Sunday, but I was never sure if he actually believed all of their fundamentalist nonsense or not. By using completely undiplomatic language as he has done with Iran, he imitates the worst of George Bush's style and makes actual diplomatic initiatives to try and temper Iran's extremism all the harder for real diplomats.

This idiotic jab at Iran, coupled with the phony 'threat from Russia' that the Conservatives fabricated earlier this week, makes me wonder what the hell Harper is doing?

Is he simply playing to his base support by calling Iran evil and exaggerating a new Cold War with Russia?

If Harper is the new Bush and it's becoming pretty clear he is, then His Igginess is the new Bush Not-So-Lite.
