Jason Kenney

So, Jason Kenney had the luxury afforded by a six-figure income, to ponder at his leisure about a move to Alberta provincial politics. Ostensibly he was going to "unite the right" against the upstart Alberta NDP government of Rachael Notley.

Only things haven't turned out that way. Jason Kenney is a Catholic social conservative whose views are, perhaps informed by his being (perhaps) a self-hating, closeted homosexual. (I only mention this to convey the intensity of his social conservatism.) As a social conservative, he will be far to the right of the values of the Alberta PC's, who were much more interested in a "fiscal conservatism" of the greedy, earth-destroying, money-grubbing oil pimps who ran that party. So he's not really welcome there and he won't really bring them into the fold.

Kenney appeals more to the version of "conservatism" practised by Wild Rose Party. (This "conservatism" involves sending threats of rape and murder to female politicians they don't like, with the leadership offering milder barbs about how it's illegal to beat them up.)

But the Wild Rose Party already has a leader and he has no plans of stepping aside from his little fiefdom and the party grass-roots has no desire to merge with the Alberta PC's.

So, in other words, there's really no place for Jason Kenney in Alberta politics. The Alberta PC's don't want him because they don't like him. And the Wild Rose sorta likes him, but not that much, and they don't want to be re-absorbed by the rump PC's.

Only Kenney's arrogance and stupidity prevented him from anticipating this reality. So now he's driving around the backroads of Alberta hoping people will take him in for the night and give him a meal. After all, he's only making something like $170,000 a year. (For a job he's not doing because he's campaigning in Alberta.)

And don't just nod your head and agree with me. Try to think about how stupid Kenney must be to have done something so stupid. And remember that stephen harper endorsed him. Because stephen harper is not a smart man. Despite what some people say.

These people are turds. Stupid turds.

This sums it up well.

Yeah. That he's a total dipshit.

(Obviously all my knowledge is based on other people's analyses.)
