i voted. so should you, alberta.

Well, I'm back from voting for Tim Vant in Edmonton-Strathcona! Voting feels good. I wish I could vote every day. :-)

I might try to do some liveblogging tonight, but I'm going to be busy getting out the vote for
Kevin Taft in Edmonton-Riverview and Sandeep Dhir in Edmonton-Manning so it might be later tonight until I make another appearance. Until then, check the CBC Alberta Votes 2008 website for election updates. Also, Alberta: Get Rich or Die Trying has a good run down of some of the blog coverage on today's election.

After helping get the vote out in Edmonton-Riverview and Edmonton-Manning, I'm going to be heading down to the CBC election night gala at the Axis Cafe downtown before heading to the Alberta Liberal election night party at the Mayfield Inn in Northwest Edmonton. If you see me around, say hi.

I wanted to give a quick shout out to Leslie Penny in Barrhead-Morinville-Westlock. Barrhead-Morinville-Westlock is my family's constituency and is where Penny is facing a incredibly uphill battle against long-time Tory Ken Kowalski's Tammany Hall machine as Kowalski is running for his ninth term as MLA. There wouldn't be a better message that Albertans could send to this 37-year old Tory government than sending them and the Boss Hogg of Alberta politics packing.

Speaking as somebody who doesn't like:

a) Ed Stelmach

b) So-called "conservatives" who make up the bulk of the Liberal-Lite PC Party

c) Backstabbing Ukrainians

Any members of the Unholy Alliance of Liberals and Dippers, socialists and sodomites who so cleverly banded together last year to elect Ed "Harry Strom" to the Premiership to keep Ted Morton out experiencing the slightest amount of buyer's remorse this evening?

73 seats!

Tim Vant? Seriously? Can you honestly tell me that you wanted him as an MLA? Because you paid attention to Edmonton Strathcona, and I sort of figured paying attention was at odds with wanting Tim Vant elected.

Not too much to say now, eh? Stelmach and his Tories won by a landslide. The people have spoken.

The Tories won by a freaking landslide. The people have spoken. That is all.

I have a lot to say and I'm waiting a day to prepare a good post-election analysis post. I took most of the day to catch up on school work.
