Speaking Of Troglodytes

Get a load of this, from yesterday:

Keith Ashfield, a Conservative Party member of the Canadian House of Commons, was recently on tour to promote the Canadian budget. When he popped into a local home for a photo op, he found the most awkward way ever to compliment a young lady for her cookie baking skills. After enjoying his free pastry, the dummy made an ass out of himself when he said she’d “make a wonderful wife for somebody someday”.

Moreno wasn’t offended and said that taking the minister’s comments “out of context” is unfair. I don’t see where context has been omitted in this story and, while I’m glad Moreno isn’t upset, it’s still a terrible and sexist thing to say.

One thought on “Speaking Of Troglodytes”

  1. She’ll never make a wonderful pastry chef or small business operator, but she will kill at the kid’s bake sale and keep her pasty white balding stern husband happy one day.
