taking aim at the 'scud stud.'

Last week, Calgary-Currie PC candidate Arthur Kent had some kind words for Tory leader Ed Stelmach. Today, National Post writer Don Martin aimed some less than kind words at the 'stud scud.'

'Scud stud' a dud in Alberta election

Published: Wednesday, February 13, 2008

OTTAWA -He was the Satellite Dish and the Desert Fox before they christened him with the nickname that stuck: The Scud Stud.

But Alberta Conservatives have bestowed problem candidate Arthur Kent with a less flattering designation as he noisily blusters his way through their ailing election campaign: The Dud Scud.
Kent is taking on Alberta Liberal MLA Dave Taylor.

Also, Calgary-Fish Creek Alberta Liberal candidate Laura Shutiak has started a campaign blog.

Looks like the Liberals are going to keep Calgary Currie.

It's a shame because if Stelmach wasn't such a weak leader it could be back in Conservative hands.

OK, I can't resist. Here's Jon Stewart and Peggy Noonan from a couple of weeks ago:

The moment when Jon gives us his opinion of Arthur Kent is at about 1:25.

I guess the moral of the story is you don't really need a party whip as long as you have don martin in your back pocket.

i can't remember a time when the alberta tories were so intent on destroying each other.

i hope kent does sue his riding association. its not like it would be a first.
