Cal Dallas Red Deer-South Victor Doerksen

my cal dallas disappointment.

With a great name like Cal Dallas, you have no idea how much I was hoping the newly nominated Red Deer-South Tory candidate would look something like this:

So, imagine my disappointment when I discovered that Cal Dallas clearly does not look like a Simpson’s character (he wasn’t even wearing a ten gallon hat in his Red Deer Express file photo… sigh).

Dallas is standing to the left of Victor Doerksen (which is probably where most Albertans are standing).

monday mornings…

Just some quick links for your Monday morning reading…

– Sheila Pratt had an interesting article on Alberta Liberal Leader Kevin Taft this weekend.

– It looks like Ken Chapman had the scoop on Red Deer – South Tory MLA Victor Doerksen’s retirement.

– I’m not sure how many people saw Stephane Dion’s interview on Sunday’s CTV Question Period, but it seriously had to be one of the worst media interviews that I’ve seen any politician do. Dion is leaving a lot to be desired, but obviously has time to work on his communication skills before the next federal election.

– It’s an ALL ALBERTA western showdown in Calgary Grit’s ‘Best Premier‘ competition. Peter Lougheed v. Ernest Manning.
