mods and cons in calgary-west.

Does the struggle between supporters of Donna Kennedy-Glans and Rob Anders remind anyone else of the "mods" and "cons" in the Kansas Republican Party from Thomas Frank's book What's the Matter with Kansas?

And does this have anything to do with the homeless problem (h/t CalgaryGrit).

The rift in Calgary-West could be a good opp for Bronco to run for the Liberals again. Weakened Conservatives = surprise win for the Mayor. First Calgary Liberal MP elected since 1968? Bronco could be Prime Minister Ignatieff's Finance Minister.

As long as Bronco or his team doesn't put up a billboard with him shaking hands with Chretien, he JUST might stand a chance.
