Warren Kinsella offers some creepy, quasi-sexual advice to Conservative Finance Minister Jim Flaherty. What prompted the masturbatory suggestion? Well, it seems the minister billed taxpayers for Cover Girl and Maybelline cosmetics in advance of a batch of TV appearances, an action Mr. K. finds both wasteful and, in his words, "sort of girlish."
Apropos the above, I have a few questions for the hot 'n' bothered columnist:
1. Don't you wear makeup to cover your pasty features when you appear on TV?
2. Shouldn't you be glad that the minister billed for cheap-o drug store cosmetics instead of for, say, Clinique and other much higher priced department store brands?
3. Isn't the phrase "sort of girlish" sort of offensive to transvestites and transsexuals, who like to wear makeup, and whose right to do so sans discrimination has been enshrined in our "human rights" codes? Aren't you worried about being the target of a "human rights" complaint for making fun of guys who are, you know, "sort of girlish"?
