Did ya’ll miss this memo? I think so, even if it’s so “whorey”…sigh…you all DEPLETE me 😦 In that “I didn’t abort a handicapped child and stayed with *my man* for 41 years” sort of way 🙂
Thanks to Hot Air your misogynist hypocrisy is duly noted:
Last week, the National Organization for Women and the PAC of the California NOW chapter took heat for their endorsement of state Attorney General Jerry Brown (D) over Meg Whitman (R) in the gubernatorial race in the wake of comments by a Brown aide that Whitman was a “whore.” At the time, national NOW President Terry O’Neill said that anyone who “from here on” calls a woman a “whore” should be fired.
She might want to have a talk with California NOW President Parry [sic] Bellasalma, who today told TPM in response to a question that “Meg Whitman could be described as ‘a political whore.’ Yes, that’s an accurate statement.”
The New Agenda and Amy Siskind seems to “get it” and in a more kinder and gentler way.

What politician can’t be described as a whore? And yet it’s only the woman against whom this word gets used.
I have to wonder whether CA NOW would be so generous if he called Whitman a “fat whore” instead of a “whore.” We know what they really consider an insult.
Whore/pols aside, what has NOW done for women other than make them feel guilty? I am pro-choice btw, I kept all my babies
