She looks like a Governor to me.

To paraphrase Senator Lloyd Bentsen talking to Dan Quayle in a
debate on October 5, 1988,: "I knew a Whore and believe me.
She's no Whore."

Lack of integrity, hypocrite, phony, and I guess if I say Liberal now
it would be more than a little redundant wouldn't it.

What happened to Jerry Brown being condemned for his wife calling
Whitman a whore and him saying he'll use it.

"NOW" first were saying. people should be fired for use of the epithet
then backed off that position and softened there BS phony rhetoric,
and we now hear California NOW President Parry Bellasalma being
the kind of person I once thought and incorrectly it turns out that NOW
was out fight against.

I guess Tom Browka was wrong we can go ahead and say whore all we
want and don't have to switch over to calling it the W, word, and that is
a good thing because that sounds stupid. The W, word.

To me it's like when I used to people talking about pollution control
valves on cars as PCV Valves, and it drove me nuts because I was
hearing pollution control valve, valve.
But I digress,

I wonder how California NOW President Parry Bellasalma feels about being
called a sorry two faced Bitch? I'm not calling he that yet, mind you, I'm just asking for "NOW."

The president of the National Organization for Women may have said it's
wrong for anyone to call a woman a "whore," but the head of the California
NOW affiliate says Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman is
one.

California NOW President Parry Bellasalma told the TPM blog on Thursday
that the description of the Republican candidate for governor of California is
accurate.

"Meg Whitman could be described as 'a political whore.' Yes, that's an
accurate statement," Bellasalma said after a TPM blogger called to ask her
about a story that appeared on the Daily Caller website.

It is a shame to see an organization such as NOW condoning the use of crude sexist insults against female politicians.

NOW has never been about women's rights tio begin with. It was all about pushing a political agenda and the goal has been to trick women into thinking that it was all about their rights, so as to coerce them into voting for the politicians that were pushing the agenda. The NAACP is no different.

It's no secret that NOW is no friend of Conservative women. I would have been shocked had they stepped up to the plate for Whitman.

By the way, if PCV valves bother you, I bet you don't like PIN numbers either. :)

They really should change their name to: National Organization of Liberal Progressive Women Only. I can't believe NOW is still relevant ... I've always seen them more of a politically shill joke than anything else.

What gets me is just days before they saying people who use the term in the future should be fired, the reason they said in the future was the the person on audio was Browns pretend wife.

Then they pulled back from that and said you shouldn't say it, then here is the California President using the term herself, and no real media coverage of it.

Can you imagine the outrage in the Obamedia if Carly Fiorina called Barbra Boxer a whore or even a bitch.

Oh my God the media would have been on it like sink on skunks posterior all day every day and still be all over her still.
