For lack of any other options

CSR makes a great point that Harper's panicked Senate appointments included another slap in the face to Saskatchewan, who will now have as one of its Senate representatives somebody who hasn't lived in the province for decades and presumably won't start now.

But let's be fair. Presumably the Cons have tried to recruit their best talent to hold the 13 seats now in the party's hands - yet the party's MPs have ranged from utterly useless to downright embarrassing. So isn't it entirely possible that the Cons really don't have a single supporter resident in the province who could do a competent job in the Senate?
