Like the vast majority of her Blogging Tory colleagues, JoJo is not at all afraid to flaunt her breathtaking political ignorance:
This editorial by the Edmonton Journal really makes sense to me. Why does a Prime Minister necessarily have to choose Cabinet Ministers according to provincial criteria?
If most of the talent is out West, so be it. Those are the people who should get the plum positions, IMHO.
And as the Journal suggests, Thunder Bay may have a lot more in common with Fort McMurray than Toronto.
It’s time to think out of the box - and out of provincial constrictions.
Not surprisingly, JoJo's commenters have to give her a lesson in basic political suckupmanship. And, curiously, JoJo manages to avoid naming any actual names:
[Maxime Bernier's] appointment to the high-profile responsibilities of the foreign affairs portfolio in August 2007 by Prime Minister Stephen Harper was seen as little more than a nod to the Conservatives' bid to make a breakthrough in Quebec.
I'm not sure what's more irritating -- the naivete or the convenient loss of memory. With JoJo, it's pretty much a toss-up.
