Beware of Belindaism

Toronto Sun editor Lorrie Goldstein has a great piece in today's paper entitled "Liberal? Tory? Who can tell?"

In it, Goldstein makes the point that Belinda Stronach relfects the "new face" of federal politics.

And it's true.

Stronach, who is leaving federal politics, never really stood for anything -- except gaining power.

Likewise, says Goldstein, our federal parties are ceasing to stand for anything.

That's why Belinda could so easily shift from the Conservative Party to the Liberal Party.

As Goldstein writes: "it's pretty hard these days to tell a Conservative from a Liberal."
