Liberal Party Co-opts Hockey!

In a gesture, if not exactly fraught with irony, then at least 'liberally' sprinkled, Paul Martin has declared the Calgary Flames to be "Canada's Team" . Actually, he's guaranteed it to be so. This is based, naturally, on the traditionally high esteem in which the Liberals have held Alberta. Martin, looking just a little goofy in his new Flames sweater, made the declaration as part of his campaign team's unseemly plan to co-opt Canada's sport. A vote for the Conservatives should be considered by all right thinking Canadians (i.e., Liberals) to be a vote for some sissy foreign sport, like golf, or tennis or cricket.

As part of this generous endorsement, can the Flames can expect a wee little something under the subsidy tree, come budget time?

Great. Now they're doomed.

Paul Martin reminds me of something Tony Soprano said about himself: "I'm like King Midas in reverse. Everything I touch turns to s**t!".

Liberals need to leave Alberta alone - we can never have a relationship. Concentrate on something else, please.
