May I Please Have Some Syrup With That Waffle?

h/t Buckets

*Sigh*

Here in Surrey, BC, we just had a civic election whereby we unloaded some political deadwood in the form of our now-former mayor.

Emperor (as he apparently liked to be known) Doogie McCallum went down like a pole-axed steer to challenger Dianne Watts, a former SET teammate.

It was not a friendly battle. Actually, it was a lot like a warm-up for the vitriolic federal fight that's just getting under way.

Licking his wounds after the fact, Doogie announced that he wouldn't be entering federal politics.

Guess again...

Somebody close to Stephen Harper better warn him that if he takes McCallum on to fill Grewal's now-vacant seat, the Tories are gonna be in for a whole lotta you-ain't-seen-nothin'-yet!

Operative word here is HAD, lol...

And HAD is what Harper will be if Doogie wins the nomination.

However, since his proposed riding is inside the boundaries of Surrey, where he has strutted ineffectually for the past nine years, maybe the riding members will leave footprints all over him on their way to a decent candidate.

I'd even be tempted to run myself if I didn't loathe the political machine so much... And with my experience, I could pass him in a sleepwalk.
