...On lead vocals, Stephen Harper.

Here's a video of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, fresh off surviving a vote of non-confidence, as a surprise musical guest at a Yo-Yo Ma performance with Canada's National Arts Centre Orchestra.

While I give him full credit for singing the lyric "I get high with a little help from my friends" in this era of hyper-conservative political correctness, I do think it's odd that a Prime Minister who championed cutting funding to the arts is so adept at tickling the ivories and singing.

Apologies for the abrupt end to this video ... it runs out before the song does.
