Harper's sacrificial lamb

Harper aide Owen Lippert admitted he was overeager in lifting John Howard's Iraq speech, claiming he was "pressed for time" in writing it in time for a BQ "supply day" that just happened to be scheduled when the Iraq War started, and has resigned from the Conservative campaign.

Not good enough. Lippert may have walked the plank on this one, but it was Harper who gave the speech -- and in Parliament no less. A leader takes responsibility for his own actions and doesn't blame it on a speechwriter.

Steve Harper is not a leader.
