The members of Alberta's Progressive Conservative Party -- whoever they may be at this particular moment in history -- endorsed Premier Alison Redford yesterday to the tune of 77 per cent.

"Why that I cannot tell," said he;
"But 'twas a famous victory."
Surely it's not just me who thinks it's odd that these same PCs -- or possibly not the same PCs, as the case may be -- in 2009 endorsed then premier Ed Stelmach by a stunning vote of … wait for it … 77 per cent?
Fifteen months later, Stelmach was, as they say, Gonzo Alonzo. Redford, you may have little doubt, will still be in the saddle as the election she promised us will take place in 2016 draws near.
