hot air.

With recent political contribution disclosures showing the PC Party holding ground, maybe the Wildrose Alliance groundswell in Calgary is just a bunch of hot air...

Its not the amount of money that counts. Its the number of memberships, the number of volunteers and the number of votes.

WAP has the momentum on all counts.

Look at the money raised in Glenora and look who won the riding!

So if money equals support, and electoral success is contingent on fiscal well being, then where does that leave Reboot?

Not that I'm a fan, but Danielle Smith only became leader in October. Let's wait and see what happens with donations this year now that they have someone at the helm.

People are going to be scared of the Wildrose Mormon Alliance Party when they bring out the social policy framework.

Anonymous said...

Oh Christ, not the tinfoil-hat wearing Mormon conspiracy crap again. Scared of their social policy, anon at 10:05? You expect the public to assume the WRA is composed of bigoted idiots, while proving it true of yourself.

Sorry. My tinfoil hat was causing a transmugerance of my brainwaves. Hat off, no longer bigot.

I love it when the "anons" fight.

I need a program.

It's like phantom factions shadow boxing.... Can't tell one anon from another without a program... git yer program.

I feel like a kid at my first Eskimo (or should that be Inuit)? football game.

This blog's comment section has become an interesting place.

30% sycophant, 30% troll, 40% random observations by people employing the naming pattern of "[NAME] [OPTIONAL ADJECTIVE] [NOUN]".

It feels like it's changed a lot over the years. To me, far more amusing. But I do wonder what you think of it all Dave?

Proper Noun's Adjective Noun said...

It IS a lot funnier around here lately. But is it better?

R. G. Harvie said...

Well, let's be real for a moment.

It is impossible for the Wild Rose Alliance to ever succeed unless it provides all members access to full reproductive choices.

Providing them funding and vote support is pointless without access to abortion.

Michael Ignatieff says so.

I love it when the bloger-azzi launch into a Pavlovian "get off my lawn" tirade against the anons. What's our crime? Refusing to take you as seriously as you take yourself?
