A joke, scripted by Ralph Klein’s office staff and told Tuesday night by King Ralph at the annual Calgary Homeless Foundation roast, poked fun at Belinda Stronach for crossing the floor from the Conservatives. Although this was a roast, I think the comment was in bad taste and went too far. It was however no great surprise as Klein suffers from chronic hoof in mouth disease. He said ”I don’t think she ever did have a Conservative bone in her body. Well, except for one,” and followed up with
”Well, speaking of Peter MacKay,” he continued.
I know roasts are by definition tongue in cheek and meant in lighthearted good fun but do they have to be vulgar.
Just proving Ralph and his staff are Low and vulgar thank God his reign is coming to an end.
