Okay – so Palmer United Party Senator Jacqui Lambie was a bit saucy on the radio today:
Speaking on Heart 107.3’s Kim and Dave Show this morning, Ms Lambie revealed that she hasn’t been in a relationship in 11 years but is open to love.
“They must have heaps of cash and they’ve got to have a package between their legs, let’s be honest,” Ms Lambie said. “I don’t need them to speak, they don’t even need to speak.”
Then there was a bit of banter with a caller:
“Do you have plenty of cash?” Ms Lambie asked Jamie.
“I’m just a bit concerned that at 22 years of age and living in Tasmania you might not be quite there yet?”
Jamie assured her he does have plenty of cash.
She then asked, “I’m just a bit concerned because you’re so young, I’m not sure you’d be able to handle Jacqui Lambie.”
Jamie assured her he could.
And then Ms Lambie asked the really important question, “Are you well-hung?”
Jamie assured her he is … “like a donkey”.
So now Jamie and Senator Lambie are going on a date. Good luck buddy – take her somewhere nice and treat her like a lady.
Rather than treat the whole exercise as some light hearted banter and laugh it all off it seems everyone has gone into humourless prude mode. Sure if a man were to say that all he wanted was a woman with huge knockers who didn’t need to talk much we’d be taking a somewhat different perspective. But that didn’t happen and so what? Yes – I am holding men and women to somewhat different standards, and beta-males will have get over it.
Update: Jacqui Lambie apologises.
“A lot of people laughed, including the tradie I was talking to, some people may have got offended.”
“I apologise to any radio listeners who may be offended by my comments on Kim and Dave’s Show.”
Senator Lambie said she knew her “political enemies” will make a big deal out of her comments.
“The reality is I was talking with Kim and Dave on Heart FM, not Sarah Ferguson on the ABC,” she said.
I completely agree – timing and context is important.
