The New York Times says that new Canadian PM Harper has "evolved into a centrist." I suppose that means to them that he is not as much a lesser life form than he was when he was more to the right.
...in the end, Mr. Harper seemed to reassure the public that he had evolved into a centrist in recent years and that his government would emphasize cutting taxes and cleaning up corruption, rather than social issues like abortion and gay rights.
We think that NYT just can't appreciate the intelligent design of conservative policies.
