California: Jerry Brown Caught on Tape Agreeing That Meg Whitman is a “Whore”

Even worse is the word “whore,” although let’s be careful about trumpeting victimization as well.  Both men and women are called political whores for their connections to special interests, so this isn’t exactly as personal an attack as it first seems.  However, most people will recoil at the use of the term in the context of a female candidate for obvious reasons — and it is also more than fair to point out that had the party affiliations been reversed and a Republican man said this about a Democratic woman running for office, it would be reviled as a revelation about the supposed misogyny of the GOP, blah blah blah.  Turnabout is certainly fair play, in the proper context.
