(UPDATED) ‘EXCLUSIVE’ BREAKING NEWS: Christy Clark’s First Act of 2013: Consoling Misogyny…
The Premier was away on vacation during the Christmas break–as we’ve been told repeatedly by her new egg in the office, and was unable to comment on the MILF story, or the BC Place overspending controversy, or the dumping of the Auditor General, or the Eric Foster constituency office upgrades outrage, or the government disregard to film industry scandal, or the John Slater backstabbing by her henchmen.
You see, our intrepid Premier–THE single mommy-you’d-like-to-chuck–needed the extra time to spend with her son, and then a very sick friend in Toronto over the holiday. Very good. I heartily applaud such activities. After all, the holidays are a time for family. That’s what she should be doing.
But, in this day and age of the immediate response, she could have certainly been available for even brief comment to the myriad of scandals that erupted over the last month. As I pointed out the other day, many other high profile public officials from BC, past and present, have made themselves available in times of crisis or controversy. In no particular order, Glen Clark, Dianne Watts, Gordon Campbell, Carole Taylor, and Ujjal Dosanjh all called in from vacations or conferences to pass comment on matters back home.
Carole James conducted an entire provincial campaign, while her beloved son was in the throes of addiction.
No such courage, not even the bare minimum from Christy. She knows she can’t appear before a camera without saying something incredibly daft, so she hides, appearing only to proffer brief speaking notes–delivered in the usual, incomprehensible manner.
Well, wouldn’t you know it, she’s been back for almost five days, and while the media have been looking for comment on a number of different issues, I’d like to announce that she’s been very busy prioritizing what’s most important for British Columbians.
I apologize, Premier. You sure know how to make a reemergence.
While her government crumbles around her, Christy has been busy tending to important matters. Never mind that the media have been hounding her office for comment, she’s been hard at work, making sure her first act is to accommodate her friends in the press; to speak to the people.
To demonstrate unshakable leadership.
Behold…word for word from Facebook

I received a phone call from BC Premier Christy Clark today at
2:15pm. We chatted for about 20 minutes. She was far from
impressed that I got fired. We had a great chat. It was awesome that she called.
That’s right. Christy Clark’s first act of 2013, was to call ‘Drex’ the DJ who was fired from Courtenay’s JetFM because he asked her a misogynistic question–which he confirmed to Simi Sara, and added that the Premier relished and had no problem with it all, contrary to her office’s official spin.
Think about it: The Premier, a woman, had no problem with a question from a dimwit about how it feels to be the target of sexual objectification. In this day and age of uneven professional playing fields for women, and rampant sexism on the job, Clark thought it was all too funny. She actually thanked him for the question. Remember?
Well, if any of you who were thinking before that this jerk Drex didn’t deserve to be fired, what say you now? He’s so thick that the above appeared on his Facebook page, and sent over to me by fellow blogger Laila Yuile, who broke the original story.
I have one question, and that’s to the Premier’s chief media spinner Mike Morton: You claimed, Mike, that the question from Drex was offside and she was taken aback (read: offended) by Drex’s idiocy. You agreed it was degrading to women and well beneath contempt for the idiot from Oz to ask the Premier if she felt good about being a ‘MILF’ (Mommy I’d Like to Fuck). You repeated that Christy wasn’t all too pleased with the whole thing, knowing full well that she’s in the dumper with the women’s vote for precisely such behaviour –acting as if she’s her sorority’s ‘Old Faithful’ that just lost yet another battle with a bottle of Cuervo Gold.
Care to revise your statement, Sir? Based on the Premier’s first act of 2013, you either lied about how the original question offended her, or she’s a complete idiot.
Perhaps, a lot of both.
And to the unbelievable fools at CFOX: I’m encouraging all my readers to DUMP ‘The Fox’ from their listening book until they get rid of someone who thinks it’s just shits and giggles to ask any woman how good she feels about being objectified.
That’s utterly disgusting. CFOX’s hiring of Drex is a clear endorsement of such discreditable behaviour.
Oh yes, Christy’s back. Prepare for more stupidity.
1) Why did the Premier have this man’s number?
2) Did she use her influence to get him hired with CFOX?
She just keeps digging herself deeper.
NOTE: If anyone would like the actual screenshot of Wilcomes foolish comment on Facebook, I’m happy to send it to you. Formatting issues abound, and I was unable to plant it in the story. I’ll try again later.
UPDATE: Ian Bailey of the Globe and Mail adds this perspective (link below, too, for those on iPad, and other tablets). Notice, it includes comments from Ben Chin, the Premier’s new spinner. No word on if Ian asked why Chin was responding and the Premier herself wasn’t available. She had twenty minutes to waste with a little twerp, why not do the job she’s being paid by us to do and answer some media questions herself???
The Premier has emerged from her silo and will finally face the press tomorrow morning at 10am, almost TWENTY DAYS after the first eruption of the most recent set of scandals.
Boy, she’s worth every penny…working so hard. Perhaps she needs a vacation or something…
