Now I love my Mother. She’s a sophisticated, smart business woman who at 96 years old (no that’s not a typo) lives in her own condo and still fries up a mean bull’s eye. But as I pondered this question a recent conversation we had came to mind. It went something like this:
Mother: So what’s going on with that election in Alberta?
Me: Well Danielle Smith seems to be gaining ground. We’re a little concerned.
Mother: Isn’t she the leader of the Wild Rose Party?
Me: That’s the one. You know, the ones who don’t believe in climate change, think two-tiered health care will fix the lines, figure white people understand other white people best, and are pretty sure that gays are going to burn in hell.
Mother: Yes, I’ve seen her on TV and it’s too right wing for me. But you know, she’s a lovely looking woman.
Yep…I love my Mom but I think I’m gonna have to go with Lady GaGa on this one.
