Seriously, I'm just curious

When did Belinda Stronach colour her hair? During the vote last night, I noticed she's now sporting this look:

But her website still has all these pictures up of her as a blonde. And no explanations!! Dammit, the people deserve, and the people demand answers!

She's following in Madonna's footsteps. What with the dating a hockey player and now the hair makeover.

I think you're falling into the trap of focusing on a politician's appearance simply because she is female.
How about:
-the disappearance of Bob Rae's glasses?
-Stephen Harper's hair helmet?
-Allan Rock's penchant for beatnik turtlenecks?

I actually was curious about Rae's glasses, now that you mention it - I should have brought that up. I'll point out, in my defense, that I've brought up Harper's seldom-worn glasses making him appear more human once or twice before. I focus on the trivial on an asexual basis, thank you very much.

I'm also on a first-name basis with a reporter who had to spend a day interviewing people on their perceptions of Jack Layton's moustache, so let's not pretend that only female politicians - especially attempted leaders - get judged on their appearance.

What's wrong is when women - politicians or not - are judged solely or largely on their appearance instead of their competence. Believe me, if I were doing that, my opinion of Ms. Stronach would improve substantially.

(I had hoped my sarcasm was clear and that I thought her hair colour was entirely unimportant, but I guess not. Damn internet.)

Belinda will go back Blonde shorty.
