It's On ! - Manitoba Elections Are On!

And the local media is already getting their political licks in!

Using a question that was asked and answered in a fair and reasonable manner a Sun News reporter contrived to put words in the mouth of long time Manitoba MLA Jack Reimer.
Jack was asked if he thought the use of a female ex TV reporter like Erin Selby was a prop.

Mr' Reimer replied that it's common for everyone involved to want to be seen with the leader.

Which was later reported as Jack having use the word prop! Didn't happen that way and they know it! It was the reporter who described Ms. Selby as a prop not Mr. Reimer.

After the report came out the usual suspects were waiting to do the typical piling on without any consideration for the facts. The Dippers and their supporters in the media were all over it with liberal use of the term "sexist". Last time I checked the word *prop* meant a support or was short for propeller! How that would be sexist I don't know. But nevertheless, Mr. Reimer apologized like the gentleman that he is for the perceived impropriety.

I wouldn't have done that! As far as I'm concerned a TV talking head is just that A Prop!
And last time I checked being able to read a teleprompter qualified someone to ...... well read a teleprompter. Gary Doers assertions and Ms. Selby's blather about "New Ideas" are just more window dressing for the party of no substance! So Erin ...... you should understand that Jack Reimer did not spend 17 years in pubic service posing for cameras and reading from scripts.
I'm pretty sure that he also has more original ideas in any given day than you might have in your life!

The Sun has a poll question today about whether you think Jack Reimer made a sexist statement!

I've been wondering when you'd wade in. Keep up the good work in getting the facts through the obfuscation. Hopefully only 22 days until the bullshit ends
