Our minds sometimes have a knack for connecting current events with bizarre memories.
Recently I saw Stephen Harper taunting the opposition members in Parliament to prove the disgraceful robo-calling affair was connected to his party. He even had the gall to say the Liberals were conducting a smear campaign against the Conservatives. Perhaps Harper is deathly afraid of smear campaigns because he knows how effective they were against Stéphane Dion and Michael Ignatieff.
Harper’s antics triggered a bizarre memory.
Maybe you remember Tonya Harding, the stop-at-nothing-to-win American figure skater. In 1994 her ex-husband was involved in an attack on Harding’s rival, Nancy Kerrigan. Nancy’s knee was injured and she was temporarily unable to skate. Harding was later convicted of conspiring to hinder prosecution of the attackers. Very interesting.
