Premier Christy Clark glad to be a MILF

Omg..lol. Is this woman really serious about leading this province?

She's phony and a liar. And most improtantly, she is just plain dumb. Dont believe me? What other person in politics, man or woman, would engage in a question like this ? And give an answer like this?

She can not think on her feet or make quick, reasonable decisions. What on earth would she do if a serious event such as a major earth quake would to hit us?

And I love her handlers doing all the back pedalling afterwards :bigblush:

B.C. Premier Christy Clark: “Better a MILF than a cougar”

By Andy Radia

Politics Reporter

Is B.C. Premier Christy Clark a MILF or a cougar?

It's clearly an inappropriate, even vulgar question. A MILF, of course is an acronym for 'Mother I'd like to (fool around with) and a cougar is an older woman who goes after younger men.

But, last week, during an interview on a Vancouver Island radio station, Premier Clark received such a question.

What's worse, is that she answered it.

As chronicled by the Vancouver Province, 98.9 JetFM host Drex asked Clark what it was like to be a MILF (apparently 'Drex' was asking on behalf of a listener).

Here's the premier's response:

"You know, I take that as a compliment … you know, it’s one of those things. Better a MILF than a cougar … so tell him I said thank-you."

The Province newspaper goes on to quote Clark's press secretary who said the premier was "shocked" by the question and "responded accordingly and simply wanted to move on."

But others aren't as forgiving — Clark's response elicited a traditional and social media debate that went into the wee hours of Friday morning.

"That two-sentence exchange has, it seems, given the Clark-haters enough fuel to carry them well into the new year," the Victoria Times-Colonist editor David Obee wrote in his newspaper.

Clark: An inappropriate answer to an inappropriate question?"Personally, I think she did the best she could with an unexpected, inappropriate, insulting, stupid question. She answered it quickly and moved on. That’s not good enough for the critics, who have had time — something Clark did not have — to think of all sorts of things that Clark could have said or done."

Veteran Global TV reporter Keith Baldry agreed that the question was a disgrace but Tweeted that Clark "should have shut [the host] down" instead of "trying to a score a point."

And then there's blogger Laila Yuile who wrote an excellent piece suggesting that Christy Clark brought on the question herself.

Yuile references a July 2010 interview with the Vancouver Sun — when Clark was a radio talk show host — where she talks about her favourite television show, Manswers, and recounts an episode where they were asking how large breasts would actually have to be to crush a beer can.

"And people are attacking the [98.9 JetFM] radio host for an insulting ,vulgar and inappropriate question?" Yuile writes.

"On a radio station much like The Fox, or Rock 101, both of which [Clark] has shown her sense of humour on in the past, documented in sound bytes and photos for the world to see?

"Give me a break."

Certainly the MILF question should not have been asked.

But Clark should not have had answered it; she should have said 'I'm not answering that, let's move on.'

And to Yuile's point: would anyone even think of asking Alberta premier Alison Redford that question?

Would any radio station dare ask that question to one of Canada's senior federal cabinet ministers such as Rona Ambrose or Leona Aglukkaq?

Probably not.

And if they did, they wouldn't be getting a response.

Oh. My. God. This is what is passing for news today? God forbid she should give a tongue in cheek response and show her funny side. Exactly what do you want from these people? If they're serious all the time, they're inhuman, and if they make a funny quip it lands in the media and on a hockey board for people to pick her apart. Damned if you do and damned if you don't.

Seriously, some folks really need to lighten up and move on to things far more deserving of ire and attention.

And I agree, better seen as a MILF than seen as a cougar.

Not a milf to me. Only a milf to the person who said that and low standards to say the least.

I honestly don't have a problem with her being a good sport and not getting her knickers in a twist over a tongue in cheek question.

Who cares? Shouldn't some of our NDP bleeding hearts here be ripping her apart for her policy rather than some question that barely deserves recognition?

For someone who claims to have passed the Bar exams and has such a lofty level of education, one would think you'd know better than to say something like that in public forums.
