John Ivison: It’s always funny

when political columnists with inflated egos use analogies that are degrading to bien en chair et voluptueuse women so they can furtively jab at politicians they don't like.

impolitical caught Ivison doing that gynophobic thing he and his old-boys' club like to do.

From the original version of his column, which the National Post revised to excise Ivison's malignant sexist observation:
Mr. Ignatieff takes the sunny outlook of a girl who mistakes a bulge for a curve.

Are you a Bully Boy hiding behind a Big Girl's skirt, John Ivison? Or do you just play at being one in the pages of the National Post?

I guess Ivy mistakes a fold in his own trousers for a bulge. That's some pretty sunny outlooky stuff right there!

As an overweight woman, I do take exception to Ivison's original analogy.

actually, the orig. v. is still up, at

apparently it was an old quote from an old newspaperman, Ring Lardner (1885-1933; fathered guy who wrote MASH). "An optimist is a girl who mistakes a bulge for a curve."

Ring Lardner was a lot more than Jr.'s dad. John Sayles played him in his cameo in Eight Men Out. I adore both Lardner and Sayles. It was poifect!
