- Postmedia’s Glen McGregor harangues Conservative MP Michelle Rempel about the origins of the hair products she uses. I am not making this up. Rempel was much more restrained than I would have been. I would have told McGregor – he of “Rape Caroline Mulroney Contest” infamy – to fuck off. (Oh, and that asshole Paul McLeod of the Chronically Horrible thinks it okay for McGregor to do what he did. What a scumbag.)/li>
- Notorious shock jock and coward – and Rob Ford enabler – John Oakley permits a piece of human garbage to refer to Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath as “a whore.” That’s a quote. No real surprise, either, coming as it does on the program that has provided Ford with an uncritical forum for years – and which said nada when Ford last week removed the only remaining woman from the powerful city executive committee.
Politicians making sexist comments? Happens too often, and the media rightly condemn it when it does.
Now, what about the media making sexist comments about female politicians?
I’d like to see our media condemn that, too.
