Alberta party leader uses big breasts analogy to gain attention for upcoming provincial election

leave a comment »

The picture of the female party leader on her bus. Big bus wheels where her breasts would normally be. Sounds like a Sarah Palin Onion headline, but this actually happen with Danielle Smith and Alberta’s Wildrose Party. The Wildrose Party is for those conservatives who think the ruling Conservative Party isn’t conservative enough.

Smith’s picture has received viral attention, just what a party with 4 seats in the Alberta legislature needs come election time.

A party spokesperson said the party wants to focus on ideas.

Well, this isn’t a good start. On the heels of the War on Women fought in GOP-led legislatures to the South, this is tacky, even by Canadian standards. When you consider that Alberta just had its first female premier coming up for her first election, the timing is even worse.

You can read more on this and see the picture for yourself on our sister blog, CanadianCrossing.com.
