2012-04-27-mediabitesreal.jpg The Liberal Party of B.C. is not a brilliant outfit by any means. Much of its agenda is faddish and unscientific, and, if past performance is any indication, simply doesn't work. Yet it's also the party associated with business, capitalism, status, success, and wealth -- and now a four-term majority government to boot.

Clark is the perfect stereotype of a career politico. She has shown that just because you can get it elected it doesn't mean you can govern. Clark's latest smoke-and-mirror act -- in which she requested B.C. receive a "fair share" of the Enbridge pipeline proceeds -- hit the national stage with a thud.
