So, MacKay apparently called Stronach a dog.
The barely-audible exchange was caught on audio tape, with one MP asking "what about your dog?" and someone responding: "You have her."
Interesting that no one has pointed out MacKay only said "her" and not "Belinda." What makes everyone so certain he was referring to Stronach?
Unless you all really do think she is a dog.
Not that I would presume to debate the issue.
In all seriousness though, I can't say as I feel sorry for Stronach. Should MacKay have said it? Probably not. Should he be punished? No, I don't think so. Was it a sexist comment? No, not really. It was just an observation on her conduct. If she wants to be revered as a so-called empowered woman, the last great hope for feminism in politics, then she should act with a little more dignity. Call a spade a spade, and if you're going to act like a ho, then you deserve what you get... canine comments included.
