Tories suffering Stockholm Syndrome

On a night when federal politicians are supposed to make fun of themselves — the annual Parliamentary press gallery dinner in Ottawa Saturday — why did interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose spend so much time mocking former prime minister Stephen Harper?

By so doing, Ambrose illustrated the malaise of the federal Conservatives these days, following their defeat by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberals in last year’s election.

They remind one of hurt puppies, constantly seeking approval from abusive masters — the Liberals and their media shills.

There’s a reason for that.

The Conservatives have decided being conservative is hard.

Who needs that when your place at the trough is at stake?

Term limits.
