Freedom Cruise Update!

With not much happening in Ottawa these days, I thought I'd check in on the state of Ezra Levant's Freedom Cruise.  And the news is...its still sucking.  But in a slightly different way:

Wildrose leader Danielle Smith has also scraped [sic] her original summer plans, including a weeklong Alaska “Freedom Cruise” organized by Sun News host Ezra Levant, to focus on the disaster recovery in High River, part of her Highwood constituency.

No worries though, true believers, the Universe remains in balance.  For while the leader of Alberta's official opposition and possible one day premier is out, she has been replaced by...some guy that used to be an MP!  Yes, Monte Solberg, once "ranked...as one of the top three best speakers and most effective questioners in the House of Commons".  No doubt he'll speak of the day he left Paul Martin speechless, though in fact it turned out Martin had left his speech in the glove-box of his car.

Fun times!

I heard that Warren Kinsella was trying to organize a similar event known as the "Society in Shackles" cruise , but couldn't find any prominent liberals who weren't spending the summer counting their money. Of course the final straw was finding out that the Costa Concordia was unavailable.

Glad Danielle Smith decided to put the people of Alberta who may need her help before her own vacation plans.
No doubt, if she had decided to go ahead with the cruise, you would have enjoyed pointing that out.

I would have taken no joy in it, Tom.

Ha Paul Kuster effectively proves why conservatives are incapable of comedy

Oh I have a great sense of humour. What's sad is that you thought I was trying to be funny. But I must give you libs credit. You do supply endless examples of humour for us.

perhaps the freedom cruise is Ezra's campaign strategy to throw his hat in for leader of the cons. I know he stepped aside for Harper before, but now that the ship is sinking...he might be able to take over the boat:)
