I like Rex Murphy. Like Chantel Hebert he calls it like it is. Some excerpts from his piece...
If we're forced to use American analogies, he's more Newt Gingrich (the comparison with George Bush is ludicrous, and Stéphane Dion should give it up) than Jimmy Carter.
For all his angularity, occasional harshness and remoteness, Canadians recognize him as a leader. They see him, in the main, as competent and determined. They are not embarrassed when he goes abroad. They know he has intelligence to spare. And despite his chilliness of manner (which I expect is as much a product of shyness as arrogance), he's a decent man who loves his country. For good or ill, that's the package - and in the campaign about to unfold, from the Conservatives' perspective, it's mainly for the good.
