I Can\'t Believe I Lost to this Guy.

For those of you who don\'t know, I ran in the last provincial election in my riding of Calgary-Montrose for the NDP. The incumbent Tory won, naturally, despite the fact that he rarely shows up for work or answers his mail, living proof that the Conservatives can elect a shaved chimpanzee in Calgary. Anyhow, the “MIA-MLA” as the media have dubbed him, was apparently the butt of some jokes by his own caucus according to Herald columnist Tom Olson (Calgary Herald, 13 February 2005 page A7). It would appear that our elected representatives will be getting new chairs in the Legislature, so the old ones are being offered for sale to the MLA\'s. No big deal here. However during the Tory caucus meeting that this was presented to, one Tory was heard to say “I\'ll buy Hung Pham\'s chair. It\'s hardly been used” which was followed by much laughter.

What was Hung Pham\'s reaction to all this? Nothing, since he wasn\'t at the meeting.
