Man-love for Stevie

and unbridled admiration for Harper's bullies.

That neatly sums up the observations Jim Judd, director of the CSIS, shares with his fellow spooks in the US - now available here, thanks to the latest Wikileaks.

Judd expresses derision and contempt for ordinary Canadians who have shown empathy for Omar Khadr. As well he complains about the legal challenges becoming a "distraction" that could have a major "chill effect" on the work his intelligence officials do.

Judd credited Prime Minister Stephen Harper's minority Conservative government for "taking it on the chin and pressing ahead" with common sense measures despite court challenges and political knocks from the opposition and interest groups.

Why Jim, we didn't know how deeply you cared.

It's fun finding out what they say behind our backs.

Watching the Grey Cup and thinking about Harper's no-holds-barred approach to life and politics, I became worried about Harper's kids. Are they in good hands? Are they safe?

I suspect Laureen does her best to protect them from Stevie's temper tantrums. Nonetheless, children who have to deal with a narcissist parent are emotionally damaged by that relationship.

Ah yes. Jim. When the bullets were whizzing around our kevlar I looked around and he was still safely ensconced somewhere else. He's an armchair boy. Never been out there actually doing it.
