Brian Et Jason: Civil War
July IVth, MMXVII
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
So the intrepid & insightful Edmonton Journal Columnist Graham Thomson writes today that a Conservative Civil War is brewing betwixt Brian Jean, MLA, Wildrose, Fort McMurray-Conklin & Hon. Jason Kenney, PC. So what, in a street fight to knock out your pal & caucus colleague Premier Rachel Notley, MLA, New Democratic, Edmonton-Strathcona & Her Majesty's New Democratic Government you need the meanest & toughest sum bitch possible. If Candidate Kenney or Candidate Jean is successful then all the more power to them & whomever wins should give the second place finisher the Deputy Leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Official Opposition slot along with the new party's Deputy Leader slot & his choice of shadow portfolio. And both men have equal experience, Brian in the Oppo Leader slot provincially & Jason in the federal cabinet so they have talents at differing levels which will be a real asset!
Of course I am assuming that Brian or Jason will win, but neither I nor anyone else should ever (must never) assume. It could be another member of either caucus, an outside leader, or perhaps a woman. Just ask Dark Horse President Abraham Lincoln, Republican-Illinois who (on this America's CCXLIst (241st) birthday) conducted the United States Civil War with grace & dignity (800,000 dead & still rising, some "civil" war.) Which is what whomever takes the command deck of the United Airlines Conservative Party (UACP) (lousy name) will have to do. I am of course announcing here that I will not be a leadership candidate but my choice would be the great Jason Nixon, MLA, Wildrose, Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre. Who else could "out-Nixon" Rachel, you, & the socialist (communist) hordes out of Room #CCCVII (#307) Legislature Bvilding, The Office of The Premier? Of course the fight between Jason & Brian will be much bigger than a Dave Semenko bloodbath (we can only hope!)
