Cactus Kate on hot male journalists

September 5th, 2008 at 4:00 pm by David Farrar

I’m sure all the media will be reading Cactus Kate’s comments on what she calls the Soper Syndrome – hot aging male journalists.

Kate proclaims the following as hot:

The only one she marks down is who gets “not hot yet”.

I think Kate is protesting too loudly here. Those of us who knew Kate before she was a blogger recall a small period of time when she had a small crush on Mr Garner. And when I say small crush, I mean raging stalker like obsession. Luckily Duncan got married, and Kate got distracted!

    That shows she has about as much taste as a blind toothless crone in Africa, WADROC. Either that, or the pool to choose from is very very small.

    Oh come on David, I was about 12 years old at the time. And Duncan was very hot when he was starting out…..plenty of much older women thought so as well.

    If you wish to start that dangerous game with me of who we thought was hot at 12, I am more than happy to post some of your female crushes!!!!! ;)

    As for the title “hot”, perhaps you need to go through and read the column again! It’s other women who are deciding that themselves, not I.

    But if I had to choose one I would definitely go with Stephen.

    I don’t know what she sees in them, they are not my cup of tea but then I’m not that way inclined.

    I was tempted to do a list of female ageing journos, but the only one worth mention is Jane Clifton and i haven’t seen her in the flesh for 5 years…altho Rosemary McLeod does have the slight inclination towards GILF…very much LOL

    (before anyone lists Hilary Barry or any of the other TV totty, they are NOT journalists)

    Cactus Kate is probably the least interesting, most self-obsessed and the least interesting personality-wise female out infesting the blogosphere – and lets be honest, she is facing a lot of competition for that title. Of the top of my head I cant think of anyone so relentlessly tedious (at least in virtual existence) and more convinced of her own fascination than her.

    On a completely unrelated matter, someone at Kiwibank must have a sense of humour for choosing to advertise on this site…..”Kiwibank, its ours”….perhaps they should have a special advertising slogan for this site only “Kiwibank, its ours for as long as DPF’s mates are kept out of power”

    [DPF: I always wonder about what sort of person who keeps reading something just to proclaim it is boring. I mean seriously. Just don't read it. But as Kate gets paid to write, I guess not everyone shares your view]

    I used to be into that American woman Genevive Westcott, (20/20?) and I must’ve been cause I’m hopeless on names and who remembers her anymore

    Oh dear. Have you read your own comments back lately? You aren’t even interesting enough to win the title of the least interesting comments person on Kiwiblog.

    NPOG – Cathy is definitely interesting. Trust me. And very interesting.

    Riki – Genevieve (sic) is a pig. Trust me. And not very interesting.

    PS Mara – mary english, we don’t want to hear about your sick threesomes

    Well I only read her blog a few times – just enough to decide that she is self-obsessed, tedious and just a little needy and tragic. I doubt that i have been back in 8 months.

    Of course in RL she might be a fascinating person – but her blog persona (probably completely different from her real one) is quite definitely not.

    It gets paid for this self-obsessed garbage? Congratulations. I just can’t imagine how they couldn’t find another narcissistic female to wax bullcrap on, like, everything like, like you know?

    ..i’m so ‘hot’..

    Phil one thing comes to mind and I will state it in a very familiar suggestion of yours around here at DPF that you frequently dish out to other commentators.

    If you’re hot, then I assume that lots of people (ie, girls & blokes) do frequently solicit you into renting a room together. Is that correct?

    Not that young. Spinsterhood is just around the corner.

    RB – I will always be younger than the hand you wake up with every morning.

    LDW/NPOG – self obsession really is personified by thinking others care about what you have said about them. Lets just draw a very long bow and assume either of you could string a sentence well enough to spell the word “m.a.s.t.u.r.b.a.t.e” then perhaps your argument about what others have written on blogs , MSM and websites would hold more weight.
