When those Reactionary Rosies voted against a party policy stressing tolerance, that’s when Smith saw the writing on the wall. All that means is that the Wildrose will be chomping at the bit to launch Lake of Fire 2.0…

Danielle Smith made one big mistake, but her motives were good, and she doesn’t deserve the trashing she has taken from the right. Let’s have some gratitude for the work she did in building up Wild Rose into a contender that still has the Red Tories scared to death.

Peter Netterville – We’ll see in the next few weeks after the writ is dropped tomorrow.

To further my previous post, the multitude of taxes that Prentice is pushing ahead with will anger Albertans against him. I am fairly confident in that as I know we have been fairly well spoiled by the low taxes to date.

@ Valerie – " . . . and have ensured the re-election of the PCs . . ."
I wouldn’t be so sure about that. The Wildrose is now in the running after having elected Brian Jean. In a way I think it would help the Wildrose if Prentice called an early election as I am fairly confident that Albertans would see that as the opportunistic move it would be, giving him a bad image. This would help the Wildrose, imo. And if he waits for the appointed time for the election, then the Wildrose will have had time to properly get their feet.

What was wrong with being the Leader of the Opposition? Wildrose forced the PCs to adopt policies that will now fall by the wayside because of the betrayal of Albertans led by Smith. Thanks, Danielle; bang-up job there. You’ve saddled us with probably the worst Premier we’ll ever have and have ensured the re-election of the PCs. They may have been re-elected anyway, but Wildrose would have held them to account. My advice is that you find a job that doesn’t require you to be the least bit visionary. The Ontario Liberals would be a good fit.

Now pi** off, as Danielle would say.

Okay, this one was tasteful. (Unlike the earlier ones about Justin and Thomas)
