10. Barbara Morgan is Weiner's Communications Director.

“Fucking slutbag," she said. "Nice fucking glamour shot on the cover of the Daily News. Man, see if you ever get a job in this town again."

(snip)

"And then like she had the fucking balls to like trash me in the paper. And be like, ‘His communications director was last the press secretary of the Department of Education in New Jersey,” Morgan said. “You know what? Fuck you, you little cunt. I’m not joking, I am going to sue her.

Were she a he, what're the odds her head would be called for, here and other places? This might be the worst thing I've ever read one woman calling another.

She says she apologized. She's sorry it was made public, not that she said it in the first place.

where on the scale of slut would slutbag fall??? Is slutbag at the top or is there more room for more slutishness further up???? I'm thinking slut-whore/whore-slut is higher up the slut scale. Just saying.

55. I think we need a government-sponsored study to determine this.

I can do it for $225,000 (with $50,000 earmarked for whichever congresscritter will help me get the contract). Cross-referenced, linked, annotated, printed, bound, and completely ready for storage along with Indiana Jones' Lost Ark in whatever warehouse they're using these days.

According to the New York Observer's Jill Colvin, Morgan believed her colorful remarks to Walker were off the record.....


And those remarks are certainly colorful!!!

Try saying some of that stuff here, and there'd be Hides-a-Plenty!!!!!!!!!

20. I've heard that kind of language from young women in and around the subway on occasion.

College and right-out-of-college types; usually when they're mad, and often on the phone. It does kind of set one back on one's heels.

I imagine there will come a day when we're all used to it. I'm in no hurry for that day...!

6. If you are the communications director for an embattled campaign, you probably

ought to know the difference between 'on the record' and 'off the record.' Better yet, you should know better than to ever engage in a vicious back-biting snarkfest with an interlocutor for whom 'on the record' is ever even a possibility. Save the angry gossip for your apolitical non-journalist ultra-trustworthy bestie back home...

Good stuff, though!

25. Can you imagine what kind of zoo a Weiner administration would be like?

I mean, if the freaking communications director "communicates" to the press in this way, I can only imagine what kind of circus the rest of the staff would be.

This is like watching the Titanic go down in slow motion. What possible motive could Weiner have for continuing on in this race? It's impossible for him to win, and rather than resuscitating his reputation (which I assume was one of the objects), it's killing it forever.

I've worked with women in civilian, military, and law enforcement settings, they can certainly speak their mind and make this male blush. They are usually especially harsh on their own gender.

On a related note.. I am shocked.. just shocked that a man with amazing decision making skills like Weiner would pick someone so poorly suited to be a communications director.

I get the impression that he was a grand gasbag--he did great railing on television, but when it came to actual "work," he skee daddled....

No wonder his former colleagues in Congress are doing the "avert the eyes" and "run away when ya see him coming" routines.
