Irredeemable fluffhead JoJo tries to blow off the controversy by asking a question she is too stupid to figure out the answer to first:
How many times will we hear the word ’sexy’ in today’s Question Period?
Anyone taking bets?
Actually, I predict that this one will blow over quickly for several reasons.
First, Steve Janke explains that the word ’sexy’ is often used to refer to an issue that garners media attention. So this ‘revelation’ from a private conversation that a media outlet has somehow come across borders on the obvious.
"Sexy" simply means "an issue that garners media attention?" Really and truly? Cool. So, given the wonder that is the Intertoobz, we can go back and see how many wanks referred to the Canadian SARS outbreak as "sexy." Hmmm ... while there are numerous hits, I don't see an immediate connection, do you? What about "listeria" being "sexy?" Huh ... not a lot there, either.
But let's go with the Premature eJankulator's lameass rationalization, anyway, 'cuz, well, it's convenient. Not even remotely accurate but, by God, it's convenient. And with fluffheads like JoJo, really, that's all that matters.
These are not deep thinkers.
AFTERSNARK: Is it really worth pointing out that if a Liberal MP had referred to cancer as "sexy," the Canadian Batshit-crazy-o-sphere would have absolutely exploded in anger, blood streaming out of their eyes and ears in uncontrollable, screaming outrage and every single one of them demanding someone's head on a pike at the city gates?
No, it's not worth asking that. It was rhetorical.
