I, for one, welcome our new backroom, corporate overlords

Lest anyone was losing sleep over the news yesterday that Ted Morton was in striking distance of becoming the next King of Alberta, a second poll released today puts the Dauphin, Jim Dinning, back in his comfortable lead, with Morton a distant third.

I have refrained so far from buying a membership, but as Manatee pointed out, their bizarre rules mean that if things aren’t going Dinning’s way Saturday evening for a clear December 2 second-ballot win, I can spend the $5 required to become a member in good standing of the Alberta Tories. If Dinning does secure a comfortable lead tomorrow, I will use the $5 to buy a sandwich. And what a good sandwich that would be…

    I’ve been doing my best to ignore this race, and hope to continue ignoring it until my own celebratory sandwich… perhaps a donair.

    100% of the PC members I talked to or eavesdropped on are anti-Morton. Here is a summary:

    “God help us if Morton wins” – from a Jim Dinning supporter
    “Morton is just too far from the mainstream.” – from an undecided

    The second ‘respondent’ also suggested that Oberg and his entire family are communists, and that Hancock is too concerned with winning- which he found distasteful. Perhaps communist and winning have alternate definitions I’m unaware of.

    The stakes are way to high not to vote, when you consider the fact that a Leger Maketing poll is pegging Morton in a statistical tie with Dinning.
    Do us all a favour and spend the $5 to bury Morton!!!
