Cabinet minister Lyle Oberg was suspended from Alberta's Progressive Conservative caucus on Thursday for comments he made about an upcoming leadership review of Premier Ralph Klein.
I have never really liked Lyle Oberg; he's always come across as an arrogant jackass. However, I have to say he got it exactly right on this one, and it's telling that he got booted out of caucus for doing so. It appears that Ralph, who's losing his temper with alarming frequency these days, gets particularly snitty when it's pointed that he's not wearing any clothes... (and, having invoked that charming image, I now need to go and scrub my brain).
