A Thought For Edmonton Centre Voters

When Ms. McLellan, Deputy Prime Minister, was asked by an astute reporter whether or not Mr. Martin had informed her of his decision to pull the nothwithstanding clause from the Charter, she replied "No".

Many of those who support the Liberals claim that their experience in running the gov't, just like a business, is the reason they should be re-elected. Who, they say, would hire someone with no experience (ie Stephen Harper)?

To that I say, what CEO would make a dramatic change to company policy without informing their right hand person, Anne McLellan?? Just wouldn't happen in a well run organization. CEO's would never make policy change on the fly or they wouldn't be CEO's for long.

And if they didn't inform their right hand person of policy change, it's because either that person is on their way out ... or that their opinion is of no value so they are not consulted on policy, and decision making is done without their input or approval.

So is Anne McLellan really the dynamo and as influential as she portrays herself to be? Obviously not. This incident makes it crystal clear exactly what Paul Martin thinks of Anne McLellan. She has no value other than being a woman and from Alberta.

And if this is the way the Liberals do "business", then they aren't very ethical, and they are terribly disorganized ... and despite her best protests, Ms. McLellan is of little influence for any Albertan when it comes to federal politics.

PMPM only rules through ultimate authority and answers to no one, so this is not unexpected. Corporations using this strategy have always failed, and it's no different for countries.

So what's the difference between PMPM and a dictator? I don't understand how he can get away with the stuff he gets away with.

There is no real difference between the PM and a dictator... except the "Queen" can step in if he/she feels that the PM is out of hand... ya, that'll happen!

Great post Aizlynne, keep em' comin'!

The problem is Paulie thinks he can run Canada like he does his shipping business. Problem is, he can't figure out how to nmove the whole damn country off-shore, so he has to settle with just stealing from it.And i don't think the Screech is of much use being from Alberta, or as a woman, for that matter.

BTW're tagged...hehehe

Anne's on her way out, her campaign is in shambles, and her workers have resorted to the much less appealing reason of "Anne being a great opposition MP". Pretty weak considering they started the campaign with "Anne is the second most powerful Liberal in the country."

I live in her riding, and I can't wait to cast my vote against her.

Great post, that logo is hysterical. I gots to find me one of those!

Accurate post Aiz! But I have to agree with JT's comments. The Screech is of no value to Alberta. She is nothing more than a token puppet.
