The Alberta Leaders' Debate - It's time for Political Smarts

Liberal leader Kevin Taft or NDP leader Brian Mason would have won Monday's election debate - in a university-debating contest. Ralph Chump Klein hunched down in a chair, chewing away at Fisherman's Friend cough lozenges (although he didn't have a cold) - made eye contact with no one - answered no questions - proposed no plans - every Albertan should have been ashamed of him. But Taft and Mason pretended they expected to be elected as a government. And that scared Albertans. Albertans have lots of jobs, are living it up and partying it up - no one wants to kill the goose that laid the golden egg. Particularly when a university professor like Taft and a socialist like Mason are waiting in the wings.

Up till now Albertans have always viewed "Ralph" as an ordinary, nice guy. Under the tutelage and companionship of Steve (the "Snarl") West, in the fall of 2004, Klein comes across as ... well, we won't say it. And as arrogant. Albertans are whispering that Ralph has been there too long. And why isn't Ralph a little more answerable? Ralph needs more opposition. Join the dots, Kevin and Brian. Propagandize voting for more opposition. Get your supporters to vote strategically. You might get a minority government. You might even win. That's how Diefenbaker won in 1957.
