This seems waaayyyy more fitting a conversation amongst the Kardashian sisters, Valley girls or the women of ABC’s “The View”. But ok, we’ve got the Politics Daily women bitching it up on their web show, “Women’s UP” about the “rude” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) who called an airline stewardess a “bitch” under his breath.
Politics Daily Editor-in-Chief and host Melinda Henneberger invites UP’s Bonnie Erbe , Emily Miller, Patricia Murphy and Helena Andrews (author of Bitch is the New Black) on the show to discuss bitch politics (see must watch video below).
“Not good Chuck Schumer, not good at all,” Henneberger said, scolding Schumer like she’s a female Mister Rogers.
Among their topics was whether it’s ever ok to use the b-word.
Ever? We’re beyond the fifth grade, but let’s see what these beyotches have to say.
Andrews turned confessional: “Some people might see me as a bitch.”
Erbe was compassionate toward Schumer to a point: “I was actually ganged up one time,” she said of an airplane experience on which we so wish she would have elaborated. Still, she declared the b-word off limits to politicians like Schumer, and the n-word and the k-word (she’s of Jewish “background,” she explained).
Murphy: “I’d be lying if I didn’t call some of my friends, “Hey Ho, what’s up?” (It’s a Southern thing.) But “Hey Bitch?” Like, no way would that ever, like, be, like, acceptable.
Miller vented over the ladies’ inability to say “bitch” on the web (she says the full word “bitch” five times). “Say bitch if you want to say bitch,” she said.
Her first reaction to the incident?
“Chuck Schumer? Of course. We all know he’s not the most polite man in the world,” she said.
Miller also brings us this gem: “The word gay is back,” she declares, as in “dorky or queer.” She knows. She verified it with her 20-something and 30-something gay friends.
