I usually focus on federal politics but the internet ineptitude by Tory MLA Doug Elniski touches on a federal/provincial phenomenon. The tendency of Albertans to elect even the most ridiculous buffoons as long as they carry the Conservative banner has long amazed other Canadians and warped our politics.
Whether the news concerns this or the Iris Evans blooper last week or anything Ed Stelmach utters a standard problem arises. Few people are willing to admit voting Conservative. We know they are in the majority but try and find one. Go to Calgary West and see who will be proud to say they voted for Rob Anders. Can't blame them.
They vote conservative by rote not out of conviction. If the opposition can break through that habit the conservative Fortress Alberta could all come crashing downRecommend this Post
