Meg Whitman took some time off from defending herself against (questionable) charges of mistreatment from former housekeeper Nicky Diaz to educate opponent Jerry Brown on the proper time and place to use the word ‘whore.’
During last night’s gubernatorial debate Jerry Brown apologized again for getting caught on an answering machine in a conversation with an aide who to referred to Meg Whitman as a “whore.” At the time Brown responded: “Well, I’m going to use that…It proves you’ve cut a secret deal to protect the pensions.”
Meg Whitman was not interested in his apology, however, saying the citizens of California deserved better! “I think every Californian and especially women know exactly what’s going on here, and that is a deeply offensive term to women.”Yeah, that response from Whitman was pretty lame.Using "whore" is wrong is all cases, unless....you're really a whore.
Oh yeah? Well, inquired Brown, what about Whitman’s chairman Pete Wilson who “called the Congress whores?” Shouldn’t he be admonished? Brown was greeted with an eye roll. Said Whitman: “You know better than that, Jerry, that’s a completely different thing.” Boooo, says the audience (in response to Whitman). This year’s election season, brought to you by witches, ‘brainwashing’ homophobes and now, apparently, whores.
