I briefly considered writing the Very Secret Diary of Belinda Stronach. I am sure it would look something like this:
Day 1: Joined Conservative Party. Am sure this is the fastest way to becoming queen... er, PM. Am definitely the prettiest.
Day 95: Suspect Peter MacKay may be hotter than me. Wonder if he would like me if I was queen?
Day 96: Found way to make Peter like me. Go me.
Day 124: Nominated for leader of Conservative Party. Still the prettiest. Still not queen though.
Day 252: Lost leadership to nerdy westerner named Harper. Plans for queendom not looking promising. Met a hockey player from the Maple Leafs today though.
Day 364: Election day tomorrow. Bought snappy outfit and new pink pumps. Want to look my best.
Day 365: We won. Perhaps plans for queendom will work out after all.
Day 366: What? Relegated to the back bench? The nerve! Stupid Harper.
Day 367: Concocted vengeful plan. Will be joining other side in the near future. Decided not to tell Peter. Well, hockey player is more manly anyway... even if he is married.
Day 452: Crossed floor to Liberals. Red more my colour anyway. Was put in cabinet. Go me.
Day 493: Was called a dog by ex. As if! Sore loser.
Day 550: Created the Pink Book. Am v/ proud of my masterpiece. Definitely the prettiest. Not sure why I received 7 dozen Capitol Hill Barbies though.
To be frank, it's hard to feel sorry for her. Stronach has opportunities that most women do not, and yet she claims to be able to speak for the average woman. If she was really concerned with the problems of Jane-Average-Canadian, she'd show a little stick-with-itness. What she knows is that there is no chance now for her to become Prime Minister and there won't be for a very long time. So, she is no longer interested. I am not surprised she dropped out.
