Tory Veteran Ready to Throw In the Towel?

Randy White is a full-blooded ReformaTory.  As an MP from 1993 to 2006 he's been a standard bearer for the Reform Party, the Alliance Party and, finally, the Conservatives.  Now, it seems, he doesn't like what Harper has done with the place.

Randy White told CTV’s Richard Madan outside an NDP rally in Parksville, B.C., that he’s “not happy with what’s going on in Ottawa.”

“There’s a lot of problems there. The Senate’s not even the biggest one, but it’s serious,” White said.

“The economy isn’t what the government is saying it is; it’s not good,” he added.

White said “a lot of people are looking for change and I’m thinking about change myself.”

Seems Mr. White's head will roll soon if he doesn't quit first having made such comments.

Excuse me? Randy White?! Harper's lost Randy Fucking White?!?! How does that happen?
Oh, man, stick a (pitch)fork in Harper, he's done. If he starts losing the crazy bigots, what constituency is left?

(Disclaimer: This is no time to rest on our laurels, take anything for granted etc., but still--Randy White?)

@ Anon - I don't think White figures he's got anything left to lose with the Harper Cons. He always was a Prestone man.

@ PLG - I had that very same reaction. Randy White, WTF? I can't imagine he's a voice in the wilderness this time around. The Tory faithful seem to be dispirited at the moment. They probably wince a bit whenever Harper opens his mouth and another utterly implausible nugget of rank bullshit pours out.

What a fitting legacy to end Harper's premiership - scandal and him smack in the middle of it, up to his neck.
