But Harper's communications director Sandra Buckler said Muntean does not discuss psychic matters with either the prime minister or his wife.Don't know about you, but I think the PM's communications director certainly has a unique way of communicating. She seems irritated at having to do so. "No questions please, we're Conservatives!" And could she be any more condescending in her characterization of this person?
"She doesn't," said Buckler.
"I don't care what she is. She is very helpful. She carries the bags, she opens the door. She is very nice."
Please, let's bring on the psychic jokes today.

The government has acknowledged only that the former CBC makeup artist is paid with taxpayer money.The Impolitical blog is hoping for a parliamentary committee hearing on this one...:)
A government official justified the refusal to provide more details by saying accountability is meant to prevent people from stealing, and was not intended to apply to staffing issues.
New Democrat MP Judy Wasylycia-Leis tabled a question on the parliamentary order paper that requires the government to respond in writing within 45 days. If the government does not respond, the issue will automatically go to a parliamentary committee for study.
