What if you threw a leadership contest and nobody came?

From the Leader Post:

Ryan Bater will be the new leader of the provincial Liberal party after a contest that was over before it ever really began.At the 5 p.m. close of nominations on Friday, Bater was the only candidate, meaning he will be acclaimed as leader at the party's November convention.
Congratulations, I think :-)

At least he has a sense of perspective:

"As far as being negative though, people should be reminded that both Brad Wall and Roy Romanow were acclaimed as leaders of their parties and went on to lead their parties to success," he said of the current Saskatchewan Party premier and former NDP premier.


I know Roy Romanow sir, and you are no Roy Romanow.

You're not even a Brad Wall.
