The Wingnuts are gonna love McCain now.

did he say that in public?

no one said 'cunt' in public in 1992. now my teenage daughter calls her GFs that for laughs.

If my husband called me a cunt in public I don't think he would be my husband for long.
We would be planning his funeral soon afterwards. There are many ways to poison husbands. I could start a web site about it.

This post is actually hilarious as long as it is not my husband saying that .

What fun it was watching Hitch and Sully go at it on TV. I was hoping for an after-show duel and twenty paces, live on NBC or at least BBC America. Velly British.

And "trollop" makes one wonder if McCain HAS Brit-envy.

A friend and I called each other cunts in high school, but it was because we wanted to be the Sex Pistols.

Is lesbian an insult now, like faggot? If so, what are the connotations? Bad hair & shoes?

well, cindy did chide him about his thinning hair in public, too, to be fair, and an aging guy is likely to be kinda sensitive about that, i love that his handlers seem to be in denial about it, too--makes me really look forward to his debates with cool-as-a-cucumber obama.

eh, i'm not sure this a good argument against mccain. there's no record of him actually saying this "in public". it's like the obama is a muslim. people want to believe it's true more then they have proof that it's true. (at least from what i understand.)

God, ECB is so old. It's like she totally doesn't grok.

Maybe Mccain is a Irvine welsh fan and left out the "dos wee".

Posted by LMSW | April 8, 2008 1:12 PM

ECB should've pointed out that women prefer to be called sluts nowadays.

Just about every military person I've ever met has a pretty serious potty-mouth. Hence the expression "swears like a sailor."

Yeah, i was in the Marines for 4 years & every conversation was like it took place in a high school boys locker room. i remember a friend after boot camp talking to his Christian mother on the phone and using the fuck word casually a couple of times before catching himself and then apologizing.
One actually gets two days of training weeks before discharge and one of the lessons is on how to deal w/ normal civilians, specifically in the work place (don't yell, cuss, use military jargon etc.).

Hey... *I* use the word trollop, quite frequently actually. (And I'm certainly not voting McCain.) Ok, sure, it's always within a recognized and accepted humorous context, but still. I also use "hussy", "philanderer", and "bollocks". So there.

"McCain: Too old to be president for the past sixteen years!"


"Obama: My opponent was too old to be president back when I was too young to be president."

It's just a word, we don't menstruate all over ourselves if we're called "dicks" so stop being such sensitive cunts.
