evans is out of the race.

Well, there are many people who will testify that Alberta's Health & Wellness Minister Iris Evans is "waaaay out there," but now, she is officially out of the Alberta PC leadership race.

To give daveberta readers an example of the "way outness" of the Sherwood Park Progressive Conservative MLA, the first time we met her, she was clinging to a plastic SIDS baby doll. Now, as weird as it was for her to be clinging to a plastic SIDS baby doll in the first place, it was at a conference dealing with international development - why she was there we still do not know (she was Minister of Children's Services at the time) - but she spoke on behalf of the Alberta Government following an terrific speech by then-Senator Doug Roche. The topic which she spoke of was just as bizarre... you guessed it... she spent her 5 minutes at a conference on international development and the third world talking about SIDS... it was really bizarre.

Not to mention the weirdness of the Tory Caucus video at the most recent Alberta Legislature Press Gallery dinner which had had Minister Evans making reference to "sausages." This is made even weirder when you understand that she typically raises (at some very inappropriate times) that she is single and looking for a man...

Not that she was a "real" contender anyway, but it looks like the Tories may have an "all-white all-penis" leadership race on their hands once Premier Ralph Klein decides to go to pasture.

I always thought it was just me that found Ms Evans to be a terrifically strange person (though I admit I don't have as good a story as you do). I'm glad that there are other people who have the same opinion of her.

haha. She's a nice lady, but she has some serious issues she needs to work out.

only Kinsella and the other PoMo's care about Melanin and genetalia. You're better than that Dave, you're Bertariffic.

i saw her once in a safeway in sherwood park, weighing the merits of two big bags of nachos. i think she will end up being the official fall-person (goat) for the health care non-reform debacle.

and you should'nt be too sure all the remaining candidates actually have penises. morton and hancock always strike me as genderless.

Somehow I get the feeling that most Alberta PCs would find your "all-white, all-penis" comment vaguely comforting...

I don't want to soften my language here, so just let me clear the air: Iris Evans is fucked in the head.

Thanks; that feels a lot better.

Hello. Any Leg Press Gallery reporters here? Wakey, wakey! If you're sick of polishing Ralph's knob and want to, you know, do a little of that journalism thing, ask Iris why she had her Registered Nurse licence revoked. It's a good story.

Or maybe you just want to go back to sleep.
