National Post vs. Sun Meida

Chris Selley calls out Sun Meida on yesterday's nutty "Lock n' Load" story.

But I don't want to focus on teh crazy from Sun Meida. In fact I've decided to stop linking to their articles, no matter how insane. Instead, I was wondering whether there's any significance to the National Post calling out Kory's lemonade stand.

Could it be possible that Canada is heading for a split in the Conservative 'movement' along the lines of what we've seen in the United States? There's an, uh, interesting comment from MIKEMURPHY in the National Post link there, where he suggests Sun Meida may "take over the NP's place as a real Conservative voice". That's the kind of stuff we're used to from the American Tea Baggers. It puts the National Post in a bizarre situation. Do they hope the non-crazy element of the right in Canada is big enough to keep them afloat, or do they take part in a race to the bottom?

Entirely possible that I'm reading way too much into one man's opinion, but I do see a bit of a divergence since the census story broke.
