    I was refering to the Virginia Senate race in 2006 where the wheels came off the Republican candidate's campaign when he was recorded saying "Macaca." I was using it as a metaphor.

    If you like, I can also say everyone is looking for their Zoe (the California race has both!).



    There is polite company and there is you and your friends. I don't think it is OK to call a candidate for Senate a "whore" but to be honest, I have heard much much worse. This indignation is, as I said, a search for Macaca.
    I agree. It was a slip up amongst a group of people who thought their remarks were private. I wouldn't condone it being used in a campaign speech, but I think more was made of this than should have.

    Sounds trashy to me in a business setting regardless of your profession. I made it a practice to not use profanity at work.

    I tend not to curse in writing, but can make sailors blush in person.

    When Arroyo Doble tries to cut in when he's dancing with his wife so AD can dance with him. Then AD gets flustered when that same Marine decks him for trying.

    Cursing and trying to be one of the guys is real lady like. You have no idea what men say behind your back. Speaking from experience.
