Nice going, premier Klein...

Maybe you should take up drinking again. Sobriety doesn't seem to be doing much to help you control your temper.

Yesterday Ralph Klein, premier of Alberta, threw a book at and hit a 17-year-old legislative page, saying "I don't need this crap".

Very leaderly behaviour there. Good show of parliamentary decorum. Maybe we should stock the Legislature with folding chairs and have tag team matches.

Sometimes I am so proud to be living in Alberta, it almost makes me puke.

I figure each province has it's own political problems and I can only say as long as you vote you can bitch and moan. Since I don't vote in Alberta I can only nod in silence.

Did you see George phoning his mother. That was sooo sweet! I want to meet his mother. Wait... is that weird?

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Wow that is very restrained of you, Barbara-mtl. I can't stop myself commenting on other provinces woes, but I hear your silent nod loudly and clearly.

I actually haven't watched the Hour yet tonight, but am looking forward to it. Hey, did he phone his mom because she won the contest? I'm pretty sure that's not allowed. And you are not weird; I would love to meet his cats.

Klein is a punk ass

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Yeah, Jen, his tantrums used to be funny, but now they are just getting too childish. Okay, they're still a little funny...

I have to say I find Klein pretty amusing, then of course I don't live there, haha.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Yeah Maureen, King Ralph is much more amusing when he's not actually running your own province. Do you guys want him?

Jacquie said...

That's pretty disgusting. He's been quite the trouble maker in recent years no?

George S for Premier!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Jacquie, he has indeed. Premier Klein is known for his big mouth and his even bigger foot which he keeps inserting into it.
I like your idea of his replacement!

I actually talked to a guy today at work who was in the room when the book incident happened.
The guy said it was blown out of proportion.
I think its time King Ralph steps off his throne anyway.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Hi uglybutterfly - welcome!
Yeah, my understanding is that the page was quite accepting of Klein's apology, but I'm with you - I think he's been around more than long enough and obviously hasn't lost his talent for being a loose cannon.
