Well, boys n girls, I share Dr. Dawg’s sentiments regarding the end of Robbie Anders career: “Good Riddance”! Rob Anders, a man seen much of the time sleeping his way through Question Period. A man who believes Nelson Mandela is basically a communist terrorist. Anders, who got himself kicked off the Veterans’ Committee for basically opening his mouth. Anders who accused Thomas Mulcair of “precipitating” Jack Layton’s death. He would accuse many others of whatever festers in that deviant mind of his. I was actually delighted that an endorsement by Steve no longer goes too far.
Ron Liepert, a former MLA for the Alberta Progressive Conservatives won the nom for Calgary-Signal Hill. He is off to a flying start too!
“Quite frankly I think Minister Kenney should mind his own business. He should go into his own riding and try and get re-elected in his own riding and quit monkeying around at other nominations…anywhere in this province,” said Liepert, who made it abundantly clear that he was angry at the interference.
“You’re damn right I am. Why? Because it’s none of his business.”
Let the games begin. Now, I don’t particularly like any Harpercons, but I’m kind of enjoying Ron Liepert’s combative spirit. He will need it, especially with this band of rabid hyenas. He’s made it clear that he thinks for himself and really doesn’t seem too concerned with what happens to those Harpercons who attempt to think for themselves.
“I don’t care. It might and I’m quite prepared do deal with it if it does,” he said.
Let’s hope he keeps it up. I can see one of two things happening here.
- Harper does nothing to help shore up the votes in the newly formed riding of Calgary-Signal Hill. The rabid Socon base abstain from voting or vote for some right winged fringe of some sort, perhaps helping a Liberal get in. Not a likely scenario, though, given Steve’s hatred for all things Trudeau. Also, we must remember that those Socons, especially if they see polls crawling up for the Liberals or the NDP, will vote strategically for Liepert.Or
- Liepert does win in the next federal election, but becomes a serious thorn in Harper’s side and quite possibly, as many detractors have seen, detractors don’t go very far in the world according to Steve.
Liepert may well be exhibiting naiveté, however:
“We’re not into negative politics and I hope this is a good lesson for everyone running going forward that you should run on your record,” he said.
“Talk about what you’ve achieved, what constituents want and stay away from the negative stuff because if there was one thing I heard from residents it was their disgust with the negativity.”
Uh, Mr. Liepert, are you familiar with your boss’s handy work? Negative ads are his modus operandi. Whatever the case, I’m sure Mr. Liepert will make things interesting in the days to come leading off to the next federal election.
