Attack of the Wildrose

Doesn't it seem a little early for the foreboding political attacks on Alison Redford? Or is the Wildrose afraid of being out-Danielled?

Admittedly, I'm not completely up on Alberta politics but it seems like it would be very tough to make the case on democratic integrity these days. Of the two ads the Wildrose has running, they're both framed on accountability issues, respect for democracy. I don't think voters are as cynical as most people do but to get people to believe that your party is different from others on accountability matters in particular is a hard sell. Particularly when it sure seems like economic issues are carrying the day.

Another interesting note, Harper's former advisor, Ken Boessenkool, is heading up a new Alberta unite the right group, the Alberta Blue Committee. Suddenly it's time to reunite?
