The Great California ‘Whore’ Debate

In last night’s gubernatorial debate, Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown spent over two minutes discussing the word “whore”–a conversation prompted by a Brown aide getting caught calling Whitman a whore on an answering machine. A Google News search for “Meg Whitman” “whore” reveals over 1,000 results as of this afternoon. Will “whore” hurt Brown? Or won’t it?! We’re on the edge of our frickin’ seats.

California sure is a hotbed of important political discourse these days. You’d hardly even know the state is on the verge of defying Federal drug laws and legalizing marijuana in a couple of weeks.
