The CBC’s White Trash: Heather Mallick

By our inveterate guest bloggeur, Allan. As I’ve been officially reprimanded for having given him his own fonts and layout, you’re going to have to muddle through with “regular” fonts and layout. And? No, that isn’t a typo down there.

It’s fun to get all fired up about something. To be passionate!
We could use a touch more of it in this country, certainly in the current election.
There’s a slight risk, however, of becoming delirious when you’re having so much fun.

Take, for example, Heather Mallick and her long-winded remarks about Sarah Palin.
To call Palin “white trash” with “a toned-down version of the porn actress look” is quite valid, particularly if you accept Mallick’s further claim that “women have been trained to resent other women.”
But when she calls Republican men “sexual inadequates” you have to wonder if she’s guessing or speaking from personal experience.

It becomes a little clearer when she defers to John Doyle as “the cleverest critic in Canada.”
She just lost my vote.
Were her assessment even close to being true, then it would confirm what a lame country Canada really is if Doyle is the best it can produce.
But he’s snot.
Rex Murphy is the cleverest of them all.

The Tyee just asked me to fill out their Readers Survey 2008.
Question #23: “Have you had thoughts about Sarah Palin?”
Well, yes, I’ve had thoughts, but not thoughts.

Except Kiefer Sutherland.
