Second Thots

Sometimes one has to step back, take pause, and have some "second thots"

What Kinsella was really thinking

I see that Liberal troublemaker Warren Kinsella stepped in it over remarks that are rightly being interpreted as sexist. He's apologized for it, has said it's stupid, and the people that work with him say that he's no sexist. Good enough for me.

However, when I read about the story, it wasn't sexism that I thought Kinsella was guilty of. I don't think there's a word for it, so I guess I'll just call it "rightism" for now.

Kinsella wasn't making fun of the fact that she's a woman. He was making fun of the fact that she's a conservative woman. In fact, you could probably say that he was making fun of her for being a conservative — period.

Chew on that for a while, will ya?

It was the usual Kinsella stunt: malign others, then, when caught, delete everything.
