Meet @Albertagrl, she's "a blue Albertan (what other kind is there)! Proud DE-NIER. Proud WRP supporter."
I'm only an Albertan by birth, but I'm pretty sure not every Albertan is a redneck. I do appreciate that her denial of science is right up front though. No dog whistles from this western gal.
Onto the funny.
This morning, Kady O'Malley, a respected reporter on The Hill, commenting on some damn committee or another, tweeted "...Peter Julian! Who probably should take some of the blame for not giving the rest of us a heads up on today's meeting." This was apropos of the public not being informed that 3 Ministers were appearing before the subcommittee. The veteran reporter tweeted that "Seriously, you do NOT sneak triple ministerial appearances on massive budget bills onto the agenda at the last second."
Sounds fair to me, but I'm a crazed lefty and like things out in the open.
Enough of the preamble, on with the comedy.
Concerned citizen Albert Girl responds to Kady that she "Didn't know that *media* were Part of gov't committee and required to be informed?
Oh snap (that's how the kids say it, right?). Alberta Girl has nailed Kady right in her elitist Blackberry.
O'Malley responds that "...I think the public DOES have the right to be informed on what its government, and parliamentary committees, are doing."
Ms. Girl? "Public doesn't expect media to be part of meeting"
I'm confused. Ms. Alberta Girl thinks we, the public, should know what's going on in the meetings, but she doesn't think the media should be present to record the meeting. I must be missing something here. Maybe Ms. Girl can shed some light on this point.
"So who asked Journos to be public *proxy*? Because, I would like some balanced representation, please!"
That was a long way to go to find out the store's closed.
OT, how do you like the colour formatting? I think it makes the posts look like the ravings of a lunatic, or a disgruntled logger with a manifesto burning a hole in his sock drawer. I hope you do too.
