I have a confession to make.
For a while there I had great difficulty figuring out what the real endgame for the FedCons was in the provincial politics of British Columbia.
More specifically, I couldn't figure out why they have operatives working for both the right-sided BC Liberals and the farther-right BC Conservatives.
Then a sharp anonymous commenter gave me a good, stiff smack up the side of the head when they explained that the real FCon game is total political war at all times on all electoral battlefields, oil-soaked or otherwise.
And once one battle is won the FCon foot-soldiers push on, ever rightward, in an effort to incrementally yank the sleepy middle to a place where things like 'Conscience Rights' start to look reasonable or, at the very least, inevitable.
You want evidence that trying on thoughts such as these is something more useful than aimless tinfoil hatting in front of the funhouse mirror?
Well, look who is running the Lake O' Fire campaign of the photogenic bamboozler in Alberta.
So there you have it.
Which doesn't matter as long as the endgame is farther.
As in farther right.
Pooh-poohing the possibility of conscience rights ever coming to enlightened Lotusland? Think again...Because the thin, shiny edge of the shiv is already in.
