Oh Ralph, how I'll miss you.

"You get a lot of free dinners, but after that you get sort of tired [of being Premier], especially when you quit drinking and then it's no fun at all. I don't know why they would want to do it other than the power and the glory I guess and the free dinners and the very few perks that go along with it."


  • Oh Preston Manning, where are you? I still wistfully dream of him throwing his hat in.

  • I feel the same way about journalism, exceot we don't have any power or get any glory. Lots of free diners though. Drinking helps.

  • Come on, Ralph is a breath of fresh air! He is that rare beast, a politician who says what he is really thinking. Being Premier must be less fun without a regular whiskey. Lord knows I need one just to get through the daily papers.

    Speaking of which, anyone else need a top up? Lois, perhaps I can treat you to a martini, shaken not stirred?

    Have we reached the point where we can't just say "that's Ralph" when he says things like this?

  • Devin; I think we reached that point a long time ago...

  • I really hope that Klein gets off the wagon as soon as he ends his term and goes back into the media before he drinks himself to an amusing death a few years later.

    Maybe zombie Don Newman could invite Klien to be a co-host on Politics?

  • I think, in a strange way, I'll miss Ralph. He was the conservative that everybody loved to hate, yet he always made people laugh. Well, most people, anyway. Farewell Mr. Dinosaur Farts! How will Alberta ever maintain its hard-right paradise without you?

    Well, that's eye-opening to learn that Conservatives are only into government for the "power and glory". :)
