Cuming Soon…

Good grief, I thought we were all bored to death by this silly tale, but not so it seems. The folks at McClelland & Stewart are shrewdly betting on men’s enduring fascination with fulsome tits in deciding to opportunistically milk Ms. Couillard’s “assets” to the bitter end — that is, prior to her being relegated to the status of a question in some future edition of Trivial Pursuit.

Now some may think this presumably “sensational” tell-all book will damage the Conservatives, but I disagree. Quite the opposite, in fact — if anything, it will only serve to make them somewhat interesting; even perhaps… sexy! And not in the usual “wide-stance” bathroom stall kind of way.

  1. Re “…opportunistically milk Ms. Couillard’s ‘assets’ to the bitter end.” Honestly, Red! BTW, did you somehow brush in that halo over her left tit? I’ve never noticed that before. This pic is taking on almost iconic proportions.

  2. A little Photoshopping on my part, yes.

    Wingnuterer had the same pic (which is “iconic” now, you’re right) with a couple of boobie birds, but that struck me as being a tad vulgar, so I was trying to be somewhat more tasteful about it.

  3. Or Red, she could be a new Gerda Munsinger or Christine Keelor and reveal inside political stuff the Conservatives don’t want out, especially during an election – like perhaps the legendary ‘hidden agenda’ or more likely, whom is sleeping with whom and the sexual orientation of certain Ministers (and not Baird, that’s just not a secret at all).

    I think it will reveal the Cons to be corrupt, not sexy. I can hardly wait.

  4. Red Tory, this is now officially embarrassing. I sincerely hope that you have milked the very last drop from Titgate.

    It’s a Breast guys. And to Couillard’s credit, it looks like the real thing.

    Her book will add more fuel to the bonfire tickling Stevie and his Dirty Tricks cohort’s toes.

    Good for her.

  5. deBeauxOs — For the record, this is the very first time Couillard has been mentioned on this blog (or my last one) in the last 1,740 posts, so spare me your snotty self-righteousness.

  6. I see the thought police has shown up to administer a proper scolding. Too bad she disgraced herself in the process by making an unfair accusation.

    Talk about officially embarrassing…not to mention dull and predictable.

    I really don’t what side DBO’s playing; we’re expected to assume that Couillard, despite her ties to shady businesses and organised crime, has been victimised by powerful men? Maybe. I don’t really know.

    I personally suspect both Couillard and Bernier were using each other and that, aside from the inevitable commentary that will be made (despite the best efforts of the language police) about this undeniably beautiful women’s…er…assets…sexism is not really the hot issue here.

  7. Ti-Guy: raise your eyes to the title of Red Tory’s piece.

    “Cuming Soon”

    Is that what passes for humour among so-called progressive men?

    As for whatever game you claim that I’m playing, please re-read my comment. None of those fabrications apply.

    I think your story has changed on this; when very little detail was available about Couillard, you seemed to think this was an issue of victimising/objectifying a woman. Now that a little more has slipped out, you seem to be championing her for becoming the Conservatives worst nightmare.

    I’m making very few assumptions one way or the other. There simply isn’t a lot of evidence at hand. And I’m not sure a tell-all is going to make much of difference. I hope so; and I hope it’s big. But we’ll have to see.

    As for what passes for the humour of progressive men…Seriously, don’t you have bigger fish to fry?

  9. Is that what passes for humour among so-called progressive men?

    Yes. 😉

    It’s called a play on words. Try it some time. Especially when it’s apposite.

  10. I have always been clear on the topic of Couillard – the Cons threw her under the bus, as they have done to many others.

    However, if you check my comment at Dawg’s Blawg post on May 27 – ‘A gal pal with a Harley history’ – please note that this is what I said:

    ” A progressive blogger, yes I’m looking at you, Mr Rolling Back the Tide of Extremism, called Couillard a jilted lover. Others have said that she is bitter.

    Smarten up, guys. She consorted with bikers. You don’t think she knows how and when to go for the jugular? I may not want my daughter to grow up to be like Julie Couillard, but there are a lot of gals like her out there, and none of them deserve the crap that guys like Bernier and Harper throw at them. I am glad that she fought back.

    If Couillard has inadvertently played an important role in publicly shaming and blaming the Harpocrytes, good for her!”

    I am correcting the record although I suspect that Ti-Guy will carry on with his little fabrications and won’t let the facts get in the way of his propensity for ‘tourner en rond’.

  11. I can’t answer for what other progressive men have said on this issue. I’m just remarking on your tendency to police language, which you know I can’t abide.

    What the tell-all ends up telling (and doing to the Conservatives) remains to be seen. I hope whatever she ends up asserting is well documented; otherwise the Conservatives are going to have her for lunch and not one of you feminists is going to do anything useful to protect her, since you’re all terrified of confronting Conservatives directly and prefer to vent your spleen on liberal/progressive men.

  12. Um, okay… So let me get this straight — just for the record and all that….

    Even though I’ve only mentioned this woman once in more than 1,700 posts, I get lumped in with “you guys” and am told to “Smarten up” and moreover am informed that I’m indistinguishable from “some other old white guy frothing about Couillard” because we “tend to all meld together”…

    How sweet. You call yourself a “feminist” but really… you’re just another idiotic douchebag.

  13. Exactly where did I write “Smarten up”? – your quote signs, not mine. Or perhaps that’s not actually what I said, just a quote you fabricated to depict yourself as a victim?

    Red Tory, nice name-calling. I guess I must have prodded a raw nerve. How un-ladylike of me. Tsk, tsk.

    By the way, Ti-Gus, I challenge religious, right-wing, Con men every opportunity I get, at Birth Pangs. David Warren and his ilk – they get chewed up and spit out.

    Why should progressive men get a free pass when they write like juvenile Con wankers?

  14. DBO — Do you have short-term memory problems? Here’s what YOU wrote:

    Smarten up, guys. She consorted with bikers. You don’t think she knows how and when to go for the jugular? I may not want my daughter to grow up to be like Julie Couillard, but there are a lot of gals like her out there, and none of them deserve the crap that guys like Bernier and Harper throw at them. I am glad that she fought back.

    Nice attitude. Way to give feminism a bad name.

  15. Umm… Red? That ‘smarten up guys’ wasn’t directed at you. You’ve taken it out of context and applied it to yourself.

    That was from a comment left at Dr. Dawgs, written on May 27th.

  16. dull and predictable… Sums up most feminists quite well. A rather tiresome bunch, generally speaking.

    Now I finally understand why you and RA get along so well. How to make a fauxgressive lie down with a (pseudo-)fascist: just add misogyny.

    Hey, at least y’all are doing your part for bipartisan comity.

  17. Frank’s correct, Red. DBO was quoting a comment from a discussion you weren’t participating in. I was one of the “youse guys.”

    By the way, Ti-Gus, I challenge religious, right-wing, Con men every opportunity I get, at Birth Pangs. David Warren and his ilk – they get chewed up and spit out.

    Yeah, but do they read your blog? Do you email them a notice, telling them “Hey, pig…visit my blog and read what I’m saying about you.” If not, you should. Whenever I see that little email icon at the bottom of the post, I email it the post to the target.

    Why should progressive men get a free pass when they write like juvenile Con wankers?

    Because most of the time, we behave ourselves.

    Well, I don’t, but then I’m not really the one you have to worry about.

  18. I see you don’t monetize your site, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn extra cash every month because you’ve got high quality content.
