^^ You really are a slow learner.

If Christy is 'so smart' show me how she has laid out her plan for "Families First."

Show me her vision for her "Jobs Plan".

Please give me a fragment of what you perceive as her wisdom in leading BC out of the incredible debt load that BC has accrued over the past 12 years of Liberal 'free enterprise'. Thanks

She's hot...I didn't care to, or plan on ,commenting on the "politics".. I never have , now that you mention "slow leaner" you'd have figured THAT one out by now.

I was just commenting on her "eyes"...
I payed attention in High school....But not to what they were trying to teach me.. What did your daughter look like ?

What a shame no one had the good sense to get you a muzzle for Xmas.

As for "minimally intelligent life form" Well I guess you're just naturally drawn to your own kind.

Norm says it VERY well:

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Pay no attention to the men behind the curtain

Laila Yuile has a good piece today. She demonstrates an example of obedient political loyalty within the corporate press. A Times Colonist editor, who might be competent on matters of genealogy, failed miserably in writing an apologia for Premier Clark. Ms. Yuile dissects the defence and leaves it in tiny pieces.

Alex Tsakumis earlier provided an unvarnished version of Clark's appearance on Radio Comox, Got MILF? Christy Clark Continually Degrades Women. The reach of Tsamkumis' blog is so large that BC Liberals knew they had to act.

First, they pressured the owners of Comox Jet FM to remove streaming audio of the Christy Clark interview. Vista Radio, a unit owned by the Thomsons, Canada's richest family, took down the audio almost immediately, "out of respect."

Secondly, Liberals asked loyal owners of the mainstream media for help. Dave Obee, Sam Grippo's man in Victoria, obliged. Of course, Grippo and his companies are big Liberal contributors, hundreds of thousands worth, in fact.

Surprisingly, Postmedia allowed ace Province reporter Cassidy Olivier to ask,
"MILF or cougar: A premier shouldn’t have to choose, so why did she do so publicly on the radio?"

As a commentator fully rooted in the vast acreage of anti-BC Liberal sentiment, I paid attention to the l'affaire de Comox. However, I see it mostly as distraction from real issues.

While this blog is in its fourth year, I'm still surprised by what is revealed through detailed examination of the province's financial reports. I was amazed that BC Hydro could commit more than $55 billion — with more to be revealed when they are next forced to do so — to future energy purchase agreements, yet draw next to no analytical comment from professional journalists.

I'm surprised that, without media comment, mining companies could expand their production immensely, enjoy substantial commodity price rises — in the hundreds of percent — and yet contribute less, little or nothing, in fact, to the putative owners of the resources, we the people. I'm shocked that Vaughn Palmer would defend the government's refusal to recognize the liability of $702 million owed to gas producers for drilling credits. Yes, those are uncashed. unrecorded subsidies to the wealthy oil and gas industry, granted by the province that has been Canada's leader in child poverty.

While the Premier's illustration of her own true dullness in a Comox broadcast is fair game for commentators, it removes our attention from more important matters. Without doubt, Christy Clark was inserted into her position for convenience of people who actually manage the province. She had ambition to be popular but not to achieve or develop policies of substance. She was thought to be a perfect tool: attractive, glib, relatively thoughtless and fully complaisant.

The transparency of this appointment was so apparent that it failed. The fatuous Clark was not the right choice; she's merely confirmed to be Gordon Campbell's successor as licensor of the looters.

Donations are not 'to keep him going' - he is quite comfortable in his own right; however, as he explains:

Money donated here at Northern Insights will help establish an association to promote independent public interest journalism. Through that group, we hope to fund FOI requests and provide resources to citizen bloggers.


And no, I have not yet 'donated' but definitely read his blog, as I do a couple dozen others.

Now, back to regular scheduled programming if you don't mind?

:dyinglaughing:

Is that like "as long as its anti-CC and anti-Liberal"? That kind of "independent public interest journalism'??

I notice that Justin Trudeau has been talking about some of his policies, and yet if you ask a female voter why she wants to vote for him, a lot of the time the answer is "because he's so dreamy". People vote for who they like more than what they stand for sometimes. Jack Layton's platform was a disaster on paper, but that didn't stop a lot of people voting for him anyway, just because they liked him. Now that they've replaced Layton with a guy that makes staring at a wall of paint drying seem like a Disneyland ride, the NDP is tanking federally. No surprise there.

So we're supposed to hate Christy because she's good looking, but ignore that Justin just also happens to be good looking. Check. It appears that as long as your views are left of center, you can be as good looking as you want, without that being an issue. What surprises me here is that the same people that were crying about how all of the anti-Dix banter was helping Dix, are not saying the same thing about the anti-CC banter. For the most part, a lot of the criticism of CC was warranted in my view, as she was an inexperienced leader at the front of an unpopular government. However, this whole MILF thing is not what the NDP, their nutless leader, nor their droves of rabid fundamentalist followers wanted. For the first time, I saw a biased idiot media guy really be truly unfair to her, and in doing that, invoked sympathy from all but the most staunchest of psychopathic NDP fart-catchers (FF being a prime example). In their desire to humiliate, the media committed a cardinal sin, and made her appear human. More-ever, rather than get angry or flustered, she handled the question with Canadian-style polite candour. Good for her. She just might make a leader yet, and I think that above all, is what has FF and her gang of NDP fundamentalist bloggers so riled up, and why they can't just let this go.

How Christy Clark set the standard for vulgar questions and innuendo – a rebuttal to David Obee, Editor in Chief of the Times Colonist.
Posted on December 27, 2012 by Laila

One of the first things off my twitter feed this morning was Vaughn Palmers tweet linking to Times Colonist editor in Chief, David Obee, and his column on the double standard being applied to poor Ms. Clark.
I’m still shaking my head.


...snip...

The only cold reality here is that no other female politician I can think of in BC, would
1) have put themselves on a station like that without setting ground rules
2) have inspired such a question in the first place
3) have answered that question with the statement Clark did.


Read the comments here:

And when you are so low in the polls like Clark is, it is an incredibly stupid political AND personal move.

keep it up FF - with this constant cut and paste nuttery on the MILF issue, you are just helping CC more than you are hurting her. Talk about grasping at straws to find ways to criticize - she should have not gone on the radio without setting ground rules? Seriously? So before she is ever interviewed, she has to tell the idiot that is interviewing her not to call her a MILF? Does Adrian Dix tell interviewers beforehand not to call him a spineless weasel? How low a bar do we have for our news media now, that we have to set "ground rules" on what names they are allowed to call our leaders in advance, and if this isn't done, blame the leader and not the foolish butt-head that asked the question? What kind of message does this send our youth? You can go ahead and disrespect all of our current leaders, to their face, and its their fault if they don't tell you in advance not to disrespect them? Just ridiculous FF, even for you, whose limits of ridiculousness seems to expand every day.

as opposed to Dix, who was thought to be a perfect tool, and hasn't disappointed.

Ross has some thoughts about poor Christy's 'ambush':

Friday, December 28, 2012

The Doubling-Back Of Standards.
ThePressIsShocked!ShockedWeTellYou
ThatShockJocksShockVille

Is Ms. Christy Clark unaware of the things that morning-zoo radio shock-jocks do?

As Laila Yuile points out, the answer is clearly....

No.

In fact, as Laila also points out, Ms. Clark has even been a willing contributor to the prurience that pervades such aural palaces of poop-flinging in the past.

So....

All this sudden concern from the local proMedia about how the mandateless (but Manswers lovin') Premier was ambushed and treated poorly by a lowly shock-jock up in Courtenay last week, seems misplaced to me.

Especially in the wake of Postmedia's 'Vixenification' of Ms. Clark that garnered nary a peep from the guardians of the Premier's honour previously.

OK?

______
Laila also points out that, as she was told by the shock jock in question, it was Ms. Clark's most knowledgable handlers who facilitated the lates most 'shocking' of interviews...Kind of makes one go hmmmmmmmm....
