On another blog, a commentor wondered about coming up with one of those cute combo-celeb names like Brangelina or Bennifer for Belinda Stronach and Tie Domi. A couple suggestions were: Tielinda and Tomach.

I'm throwing "Belindomi" into the ring.

Some bloggers and postings have said they don't care about this affair. I call bullshit. It may not affect you directly, but it was certainly interesting news.

Canada doesn't often have these political-celebrity scandals of the heart, but you have to admit, Belinda has certainly made the political scene more interesting. Has this translated into more people paying attention to politics again? Voter turnout increased sine last election. Ah, who knows.

First with the whole switching parties the day before a confidence vote, which apparently also meant breaking up with Peter Mackay. Next time I break up with someone I'll just say, "Hey, sorry, switching parties." That relationship didn't work because Pelinda, Petelinda just doesn't have any ring to it.

Then we see pics on Belinda and Bill Clinton. No one knows the details there, but even if it were a scandal, would it have been such a surprise? I'm pretty sure we would have called them Billinda and they would have stuck/snuck around for much longer.

Recently, when Peter Mackay (ironically the minister of Foreign Affairs) met with U.S. Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, the media tried to sensationalize the meeting and put a sexy twist on it. But it wouldn't have worked anyway. For the life of me, I can't come up with anything...

Peterleezza -- sounds more like that grunge concert
Condipete -- ??
Condolepeter -- maybe
Peterice -- no thanks
Condomackay -- see the twist? ;-)

See, none of those work. Poor Peter, the vowels in his name just do not flow into women's names and I'm afraid he just won't find true love (...whimper).

But now we have Belindomi (emphasis on "lin", as in buhLINdomee). It's not a great name combo, but it was only meant to last 20 minutes of play in New York anyway.

Which will be much like Belinda's political career, but I think she'll only get 2 minutes for hooking.

Long time no blog - I miss your updates on the state of to speak, north of the border.

I'd say poor Belinda, but that's a bit of an oxymoron, isn't it?

Mind you, Peter MacKay was a bit of a moron for mixing his x's and o's. He got x'nayed in a real hurry.

All's fair in love and partisanship.

Awesome post. I laughed all the way through but 2 mins for hooking takes the cake!
