'grade a' alberta bs.

Premier Ralph Klein from yesterday's Edmonton Sun...

"I know that in this province, the buck would have stopped with me," Klein told reporters yesterday after the Gomery Commission report exonerated the prime minister of direct involvement.

Klein said that considering the magnitude of the scandal, he "would be hung" if his government squandered hundreds of millions of Alberta taxpayers' dollars.

"If they couldn't track me down, I would have to find a place far enough away in the world to hide," he said. "This kind of thing is not acceptable to Alberta people."

...

"They seem to get away with this kind of thing in Ontario and to some degree in Quebec," he said. "I guess the people there will vote for the devil they know rather than the devil they don't know."

So says the guy who constantly downplays the reports of and ignores his own Auditor General...

*cough*bullshit* cough*

No fucking shit.

I think the man has repeated these myths so much that he actually believes the lies.

Alberta is a hotbed of tolerance and indifference to corruption, hubris, and arrogance on the part of the provincial government.

Ralph Klein knows that one of the reasons his job is so easy is because people stopped paying attention once the deficit was turned around. He can get away with practically anything.

Well, well, well...

Looks like you finally threw out your 'no-swearing' pledge. I knew it was only a matter of time... hypocrite!

Since when does Ralph Klien think he's Harry Truman?
