alberta: political clearing house.

The newest of the new in the never halting rotating door of right-wing parties is entering stage right: The Wildrose Party.

If Ken's list is correct, it is certainly an interesting group. Senator-in-waiting Lynk Byfeild, former Alberta Alliance candidates Elanor Maroes and Marilyn Burns, and Gordon Stamp.

Hell yeah!

I hope that we can get candidates running under the following banners in the next provincial election:

-Alberta Alliance
-Alberta Party
-Separation Party of Alberta
-The Alberta Independence Party
-The Alberta Traditional Family Party
-The Republican Party
-The Jesus First Party

The more, the merrier, I say.

I know that as a good Alberta lefty I'm supposed to wish the right would unify and come up with a credible alternative to the lumbering Tory beast, but I can't help it--I just find this sort of thing so hilarious.

The seperatists should be encouraged at every turn....all six of them.
