If you are among the few who don’t make it a habit to visit Conservative MP Monte Solberg‘s most excellent blog, stop it. Which is to say start visiting it and make it a habit. It’s often funny, always interesting, and informative too.
Fer example: Here’s a tidbit I learned on his blog today about that most able and electable Conservative MP Rona Ambrose, whose name sounds like poetry and who, aside from being extremely smart and capable in every which way, is, let’s face it gentlemen, rather babe-a-licious —which I mean of course in that ever-so-respectful, mature, and gentlemanly kind of way. She’s married to Bruce, I’m married extremely happily (hi honey!), you’re married, or you’re a woman, or whatever, let’s not go anywhere but where conservatives go with this one, which is simply home. But it does have to be pointed out because it’s the elephant in the room. OK bad analogy since she’s not even overweight.
Here’s an I’m no worse than caveat: The esteemed Greg Weston of Sun Media described her in a column as “Rona Ambrose, the bright and beautiful Edmonton MP”. What I said.
But—oh yeah! Here’s the thing I learned about Rona Ambrose: She speaks four languages. That’s gotta count for something.
Now read how Monte Solberg says that same simple thing in a blog entry today (Oct 15/05). He was caught up on what sounds like a miraculous food thang.
[…] Rona Ambrose also spoke and actually made things like federalism and equalization sound interesting and relevant. Rona is a policy wonk who speaks, get this, four languages. Oh okay, just four eh. What’s the matter Rona, are you a slacker? Anyway she succeeded in making it all interesting which is a minor miracle. Did I say minor miracle? Actually it is probably at least a medium miracle. Not the turning of water into wine exactly, but more like turning dry toast into freshly baked seven grains bread with dollops of butter. […]
Weekends are made for this sort of benign daydreaming, and is one of the things that makes blogs more interesting than listening to Mike Duffy strain to sound unbiased against conservatives. Talk about yer elephant in the room…
But just to add a little meat to the bones here, in case the elites who are oh-so-above all this triviality are reading:
Rona Ambrose graduated from the University of Victoria—which by miraculous coinkidink is my alma mater! No wonder she’s so darned smart. All the smartest, best looking people went there, and many of us turned into conservatives. The rest are still trying to figure it all out. She got her masters degree in political science from the University of Alberta. I, however, did not. Let’s move on. Nothing to see here, folks.
The four languages Ms. Ambrose speaks are: Spanish, Portuguese, and “intermediate” (according to her web site) French. And English of course, “medium miraculously”, to paraphrase Monte Solberg.
Since Monte Solberg introduced the concept of miracles in relation to Rona Ambrose, I of course appealed to the web site CanadianChristianity.com, which says this about her:
[…] Ambrose is a fair example of the young urbane, sophisticated type of Conservative that Stephen Harper has been able to quietly attract to the new party. A former constitutional advisor to the Alberta government, she comes across in the house as one who sees no shame in being an Alberta-type conservative. In so doing, she cheekily ? and effectively ? portrays the Liberals opposite as mostly tired, elderly males who should be put out to pasture. […]
Nothing about miracles, but that’s OK. They have to pace themselves somewhat whereas we can take liberties.
Rona Ambrose is repeatedly quoted in media as the one who stood up in the House and told the minister of Soviet-style childcare and liberal-left indoctrination (and “early learning”!), Ken Dryden, that “We don’t need old white guys telling us what to do.” By which she meant a bunch of old liberal-left quasi socialist elitist hacks. A statement with which we can all agree.
Another columnist, Linda Williamson of the Toronto Sun, described her as articulate and attractive:
The most articulate person I heard on all this last week was Rona Ambrose—another attractive, young Conservative MP, who has now replaced Stronach in Harper’s shadow cabinet.
[…] She said she had to beat out seven men to get where she is, and she’s never felt a victim of sexism in the party. Politics is a “blood sport,” she added, “and you have to earn your way.”
And she has.
