On the Web Friendliness of the Conservative Candidates

Bree has an interesting entry on Ms. Stronach’s new blog. Despite Todd’s cutting (and accurate) comparison of her site to a ‘Pier-1 e-store’, she scores points for being the Web-friendliest candidate. Of course, when she’s competing with the awfully-Photoshopped image of Tony Clement and his MS Word (MS Word!) documents, it’s hardly fair.

I also applaud the mere modernity, directness and marketing-savvy of Belinda Stronach’s site. Compare it with Steven Harper’s top banner, which bravely attempts to encompass 9,984,670 square kilometres in 581 pixels. I see that www.stevenharper.com was already taken. Thank goodness that guy doesn’t want to lead our nation.

    I find it interesting that in the top banner Harper manages to nearly completely omit the prairies (what’s there is so obviously Alberta – what about the other two?). Isn’t that supposed to be where most of his support lies?

    Then again, maybe I’ve just answered my own question.

    I wonder how many little old ladies in Winnipeg are going to type in http://www.belinda.com and get the shock of their lives. Also, Belinda.ca has a blog but they are not displaying comments. Kinda misses half the point (or more)

    I thought Tony Clement had a chance until I saw that webpage. Geez!

    stephenharper.ca isn’t available. Whois says that it is controlled by an organization called torywatch.com

    Belinda’s site kind of bugs me. If I was on a low-res screen, I wouldn’t see her content changing below her massive header. Aside from that, though, I applaud her guts in going for it, regardless of who is pulling the marionette strings (or not).

    Try to find Belinda and make the mistake to ue the wildcard .* dot star Whata smut approach we apparently need in Toront ? Despite the lessor quality http://www.tonyclement.ca I propose that we support him all-the-way. We know him locally, he is a decent fellow and he does not need the smutt supporters of Toronto’s and other inner city society
