If I think Alberta politics are exciting, am I a loser?

Colby Cosh has a post tonight that hits on so many different aspects of Alberta politics in 2004, it demands a reaction from the bottom of the province. The present hyperventilating on Rutherford, AC.com, etc. about Western separatism also requires some comment.

This will happen in the next couple of days. For now, I will simply say, Gary Masyk is indeed an idiot, and his defection is in NO WAY a sign of Alberta Alliance momentum. The Ralph Klein version of Alberta "conservatism" may well have run its course; and there may well be a party that sneaks up his (or rather his party's) right flank in the not-too-distant future. However, as someone who would plausibly be inclined to support such a party: the AA and Randy Thorsteinson aren't it.
