    Too late for them to get Stronach!  She jumped ship to the Liberals during the last, unsuccessful non-confidence vote as the tie-breaking vote.  And Peter MacKay was her boyfriend at the time!   (Maybe still is, I dunno.)  

    I'm mystified as to why they still have Harper in place.  He doesn't look comfortable in his own skin, he doesn't look comfortable in his own policies:  he wants to be a hard-right ideologue, no doubt, but he's restricted by the lack of a sizeable hard-right contingent in Canada -- in other words, Canada's depleted population of suckers.  Harper spent much of the Tories' last convention trying to tell the wingnuts to pipe down.

    Basically, Harper looks more like a pasty, nervous Republican policy wonk, a petty bureaucrat gnome in some backwater of the Bush administration.  Like Scott McLellan without all the charisma. (Heh!)

      If memory serves, part of Belinda's very public break-up with the Conservative Party was a similarly public break-up with Peter MacKay.
