A dismissive wave

Garth is right on today:
Stephen Harper sat back in his seat, looked bored, feigned not to be listening, gave Dion a dismissive wave and rudely shared jokes being passed among his Conservative underlings. Fourteen feet above his head, in the members’ gallery for visitors, sat Janine Krieber. She urged her husband on, with the hint of a smile and the imperceptible signals in her eyes that only marrieds can discern. Stephane looked up, then carried on with his difficult task. The Conservatives tried to throw him off with heckles. When that didn’t work, they laughed. But when he was done, they just sat there.
How evocative a picture of our PM while off camera. Kinda takes you right there, doesn't it?
