Double-standards let Jacqui Lambie off the hook for inappropriate 'well-hung' comments: "And here, when asked about her ideal man, the single senator replied, "they must have heaps of cash and they've got to have a package between their legs".
"They don't even need to speak".
Later, when a prospective suitor called up the show, Lambie enquired if 22 year-old Jamie was "well-hung".
This induced great mirth from Kim and Dave (ratings gold!), but just imagine if a male politician had offered a similar opinion, about say, a woman needing to be "really rich and have massive boobs".
It would be a career-ending, resigning offence. Facebook groups would spring up in protest. People would make t-shirts and take to the streets in outrage.
In recent months, Tony Abbott has weathered howling storms for suggesting a Liberal candidate had sex appeal. And for winking when a talk back caller revealed she worked on a sex line.
Clive Palmer has also raised the eyebrow of disapproval for calling female journalists "madam" and "my dear".
And yet, Lambie is sure to stroll away from her Heart appearance and into her next set of public comments with nary a scratch."
