You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run

Kenny Rogers

The Lout loves casinos - but, judging from the way Klein played the Long Goodbye/Leadership Review meeting last night, Klein never learned to play anything but the slot machines. If he'd bailed out before the leadership vote (thank God for secret ballots) he'd have ended up owning a good part of a private health care company with smoking privileges on a private jet and "Doctor" Colleen would have been fully certified by a fully Accredited Christian College as a real doctor. After the vote, we doubt if either will salvage even a directorship in MultiCorp (now Zi Corp) - we've heard that her brother Ted sold all of his stock at a huge profit years ago - Ted's living, high-off-the-hog now on Vancouver Island. For the Kleins, though not quite as bad as the end of Romania's Ceausescus, it's not pleasant. But don't count Ralph or "Doctor" Colleen Klein out yet - they may hang on - they did get 55% of the vote - what have they got to lose? The Kleins could easily hold up the Tory stagecoach at the pass. Media and Tory jackals and hyenas are circling the Kleins but how are the Tories going to get rid of the Kleins? Constitutionally - Alberta's constitution doesn't talk about political parties? The only way the Tories can get rid of the Kleins is by drumming up enough Tory MLAs to condemn them with a non-confidence vote in the Alberta Legislature.

The new Tory Leader and, presumably, premier? Not Mark Norris - his imbecilic "tax deductible" fund-raising scheme has Edmonton amateur written all over it. We think that the anti-establishment tsunami that swamped Klein will drown Jim Dinning - he's still known as the Man from TransAlta (or is it Enron?). Apostle Preston Manning - too much back-to-the-Bible religion and the Howdy Doody Factor will do him in - all the Apostle will do is destroy Sheriff of Nottingham Ted Morton's chances by splitting the Neanderthal vote. Leaving us with the man who slew the giant, Big Chief Walking Ego - Dr. Oberg (see 28-Mar-06) and Alberta may be the better for it.
