Comparing media reaction to Christy Clark’s cleavage vs Maxime Bernier’s ex-gf’s

Christy Clark and her media cohorts are still milking all they can from a Tweet by an ex-NDP MLA on what he deemed questionable attire for the Legislature.

Now take a look at these articles about the former girlfriend of then Foreign Affairs Minister Maxime Bernier:

The StarHow much cleavage is too much? “In business, it’s important that no cleavage be shown. … It’s plain inappropriate. It’s déclassé.” 

Globe and MailBernier, keep daddy out of it “including arriving with the ridiculously dressed, cleavage-baring Ms. Couillard at his swearing-in”

National PostThe Great Divide “Recently a pair of breasts hit the media and suddenly the chattering classes have become obsessed with cleavage. You know the breasts, the ones belonging to Julie Couillard, the former squeeze of Maxime Bernier, the former foreign affairs minister, thanks to, among other things, Couillard’s Cleavage. She wore a low-cut dress to her flame’s swearing-in ceremony. Everyone pointed, a few jeered — “How French!”

That was then followed by the Letter to the Editor headline – Tales of two titties

CTVCoulliard may auction off famous dress “compared Couillard’s ensemble to Monica Lewinsky’s infamous semen-stained navy-blue Gap dress”

I could go on forever listing links similar to these but you get the point… there are different sets of standards in the Canadian media covering boobs depending on whose they are.

    Put a hot tub in the HOUSE and get the guys to get in…..
    They will look far worse and their egos, destroyed!

    This is absolutely a deal breaker and if BC-ers vote a single Dipper because of this sexist position, H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-T-S!

    maxieme’s girlfriend was a babe not a politico.

  3. Liz J Says:

    Seems to be a lot of boob watching going on so if you’re in or around politics it’s not really safe to expose a bit of cleavage if you’ve got anything important to say, the cleavage will become the story, much more titillating.

    As for Bernier’s ex, she was a little beyond showing a bit of cleavage, it was more like a pop-out and it was not appropriate attire for the occasion IMO. However, the picture was most useful to the freaking media both before and after Bernier left his briefs/documents in her apartment. Quite a bunch of media tit heads out there, all cleavages are not created equal, some are more noteworthy/newsworthy than others, we know the criteria.

    In show business they say, ” there’s no such thing as bad publicity as long as they spell your name right”.

    They’ve all spelled Ms. Clark’s name correctly..

    Christy,whose detractors say she’s a dumb as their favourite cliche,”sack of hammers,fencepost,”etc., has successfully steered attention away from her policies or ethics,all by showing a tiny bit of cleavage.

    She may know little about running the Province of B.C., but she sure knows how to manipulate people.

    I know I’m gonna get hate mail BUT comparing Christy to Julie is apples to grapefruits kinda thing.

  6. dmorris Says:

    I’d say more like grapefruits to melons,bubba.

  7. Bubba Brown Says:

    Spittin’ coffee and “re-calibrating” here dmorris. I stand corrected.
    Thanks for the chuckle.
    The one thing these two ladies do have in common is neither one was elected Premier of B.C.
