Ambrose harried by hair comments

It seems I’ve set a dangerous precedent on my blog: mixing sarcasm and environmental issues. Some Canadian environmental activists in Nairobi tried to use sarcasm to critique Rona Ambrose’s horrible performance as Environment Minister, but they’ve been accused of being “sexist and gratuitous.” The offensive comment—a dig involving Ms. Ambrose’s hair—came out of a newsletter circulated amongst delegates in Nairobi. The anonymous writers of the letter should have shown more modesty. To propose that someone has better hair than skill as an environment minister is too great of a taboo in our culture. They should have simply said Ms. Ambrose eats children.
