Well! There's certainly no shortage of safe Conservative seats in Alberta Premier Jason Kenney could use to saddle up and ride back to Ottawa to save conservatism after Andrew Scheer's disastrous impersonation of the Conservative Party of Canada's leader ended in ignominy last night.

It takes a special talent to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory the way Scheer did -- and if we know anything about Alberta's newish Conservative premier, an Ottawa insider if ever there was one, it's that unlikely catastrophic losses like Scheer's are not part of his election night repertoire.

You would have thought almost any Conservative leader could have crushed Justin Trudeau's hopes after the prime minister's dismal performance of the past couple of years -- even Maxime Bernier!
