The Danielle Smith Fiasco

She seems like a nice lady with intelligence.  So how in the world did she make the boneheaded move of crossing the floor in the Alberta legislature thereby alienating her constituents and further harming the only credible right of centre alternative to the PC dynasty in Alberta?  Now she’s lost the PC riding nomination, naturally.  Why would anyone trust her political instincts going forward if she couldn’t be trusted with ones vote?  I chalk it up to political machinations, a self centred aspiration, and an abysmal failure in gauging public perception.  We the people are sick and tired of witnessing deceit by the people who have put their names forward to act on our behalf in constructing laws, spending our tax money, and administering impactful civil matters.  Should we send all candidates for public office first to the school of Common Sense 101.
