Comical Connecticut Senate Candidate Cries ‘Whore’ During Debate

  how very uncouth

They let me back on tv!Fun Connecticut lady Lee Whitnum appears to be a fixture in pretty much every “Nutmeg State” Democratic primary for any national office. She gets up there and starts hollering about a valid concern — how every Connecticut Democrat, as well as every other politician, just does whatever Israel wants 100% of the time — with absolutely no tact. For example: the Senate debate last night when she called Rep. Chris Murphy a “whore.” Look, Lee, that was a long time ago and Murphy had to pay for law school somehow, okay?

Chris Dodd and Joe Lieberman must be rolling in their graves:

It’s not often the word “whore” plays into a debate for U.S. Senate, but it happened Thursday night as five democratic candidates squared off in the first televised debate of the campaign season.

Lee Whitnum, an author from Greenwich who claims some of her ideas will anger voters, went after U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy for his stance on support for Israel.

Murphy called Whitnum out after the comment, saying he had supported inclusion by all candidates in the debate, but might rethink his stance after Whitnum’s “awful language.”

No more hilarious shouty lady? As great Connecticut liberal leader of yesteryear (and Wonkette bus friend!) Ned Lamont once said about the financial crisis’ effect on Greenwich, “This is our Katrina.”

    He should have turned and said, "thanks, Lee Whitnum-nuts!" Oh well, she was probably on her period.

        All women are pregnant. We are nothing but Womb Zombies who are here to suck the baby batter from the men. We get our government checks and spend it on scanty panties and we drain the spermies again. We aren't going to stop until we get those big Tiger Wood sized checks every month.

        1. Chichikovovich

          here to suck the baby batter from the men…. we drain the spermies again.

          Please don't speak with such disrespect toward our precious bodily fluids. That's our life essence you're talking about there.

          1. Barb

            I don't have a cool cool uterus right now, Chic. Just give me some time in a graveyard, a shovel and my hunchback friend and I will be back to getting men to do my will.

            Your first clue should be when we answer the phone every morning by saying, "Happy Father's Day!"

          2. Chichikovovich

            Now Barb, you know that it just takes a coquettish flutter of your eyelashes and we're your slaves.—

        2. Chet Kincaid

          I advocated for all Wonketeers to be a part of these comments. I might think twice about that with that kind of awful language being used in these threads!!

        3. Boojum

          Wait. Is this the baby batter where you just add water or the kind where you have to add milk and eggs?

          And, when you cook it, do the babies come out fluffy and light or all flat and chewy?

    1. Dashboard_Jesus

      so anyone can call ANY other candidate a socialist/ communist/ nazi/ racist but a nice liberal lady can't call one of her own out for being the one thing we KNOW they all are WTF? I guess caliin' 'em a whore a whore just crosses the (whore) line

  2. tbogg

    I don't know what's worse. Anti-Semite meth lady or the guy who spent his dad's last 57 cents on that tie.

    1. Callyson

      Had to look that gem up. For those too lazy to do so:

      nafka – Or: nafkeh , early-20 th century American term, borrowed from the Yiddish and prior to that from the Aramaic nofka , meaning streetwalker. See prostitute …

      1. sullivanst

        Also, quantity, nastiness and extremity of craziness.

        There's a reason we call it false equivalence ;)

      1. Boojum

        She figured, "Water is good. Oxygen is good. More is better!"

        Who am I kidding? She saw an open bottle and drank it, because God told her to.

  3. BigSkullF*ckingDog

    Happy good Friday guys! Tonight I am having some friends over and I am going to BBQ some beef and chicken skewers on little crucifixes. Then we are going to eat them with bread (body of Christ) beer (blood of Christ) and corn on the cob (cob of Christ?). Then we may dance around my back yard in various stages of undress and maybe partake in the herb of Christ. So pretty much a typical Friday night except for the little crucifixes.

    1. C_R_Eature

      Excellent. It sounds about right for Pastafarian Holy Foamy Friday, also. So you're covered there.

      1. BigSkullF*ckingDog

        It's 10:30 am and I have already conducted one round of beer tasting so holy foamy Friday is definitly covered.

    2. Guppy

      A religious observance on a Friday, paired with a meal that contains no pork…

      SECRET MUSLIM!!111!!11

    3. Boojum

      You should try coating the meat with Barb's special baby batter and deep frying in fetus fat. Yum!

    1. Chichikovovich

      Every single instance in my life that I violated my personal "Don't fuck crazy" code, I've come to regard the slip as a catastrophically stupid, potentially life-wrecking blunder within less than 24 hours of the event.

      Yeah, sure, I'd hit that. What's her address?

    2. flamingpdog

      Based on the look in her eyes in that pic, I'd guess she's already been hit a number of times before. With a hammer.

  4. Mahousu

    It’s not often the word “whore” plays into a debate for U.S. Senate

    Senators playing with whores, on the other hand …

    1. Boojum

      And she went after him for his stance on Israel. Was it a wide stance? I heard rumors on the Internet and don't know anything, so it must be true.

    1. Negropolis

      Nope, but the United Association of Pipefitters Local 69 sure have. Bow-chicka-wah-wha.

  5. SayItWithWookies

    On the one hand, it's probably a valid accusation; on the other, she's vying to do the same thing, just with different johns. Integrity is hardly ever as clear-cut as we pretend it is.

    1. SheriffRoscoe

      Yeah and since when is the word whore considered "awful language?" You can even stand up and say that one in church! Murphy needs to check himself before he wrecks himself.

  6. MarionNYNY

    Why the fuck is the left so stoopid? You get the shot to be up there, to at least talk about this shit and you blow it by coming off like a crazy lady. At least it made everyone else look idiotic for even being up there with you. Agent provocateur, much?

    1. Negropolis

      Excuse my French, but what the fuck are you talking about? Here on the left, folks like her are exceptions in debates, and they are roundly ridiculed. On the other side, they are the rule and the craziest one gets rewarded with the nomination or front-runner status.

  7. OneYieldRegular

    Call me crazy, but I suspect her strategy for attracting the Jewish vote may just backfire.

    1. Negropolis

      The only two acceptable Wonkette answers…

      1. Today, we are all Lee Whitnum.

      2. All of us, Katie.

  8. Beowoof

    Well sweetie you just can't out do the republican debate side show no matter how hard you try. And whilst thou are attempting to be the Democratic answer to Chelliie, you just can't get that crazy by shouting whore a couple of times. If you going to go full R, then you need to really get crazy.

  9. Callyson

    "…and I'm the zealot"

    Gee, why would anyone get the impression that someone who calls her opponents "whore" and "ignorant" might be a zealot?

    1. HippieEsq

      Where would proceeds go? Fifty-fifty split between the Emergency Committee for Israel (aka Kristol) and the Park Slope Brooklyn Coop?

  10. Callyson

    I am officially jealous of Connecticut residents for getting the lulz from this Senate race. Though, if Orly Taitz gets the GOP nom, the Golden State might have some amusement coming its way as well…

    (Please God please God pretty please God…)

  11. JustPixelz

    I live Connecticut and I'm shocked, shocked to learn there are whores in the nutmeg state. I'm also shocked to learn this is the nutmeg state.

    Ya gotta admit blondie will be a good match to the wrasslin' lady, Linda McMahon (R-WWE).

  12. Antispandex

    Don't you just hate it when someone who doesn't have the looks, or the personality, to be a really fine whore, makes sport of those who do? Besides, calling any politician a whore in a debate is redundant…totally true, just to be clear, but seriously overstating the obvious.

  13. JustPixelz

    Ms Whitnum said people all over the world hate the United States. That's only true in a narrow, geographic sense: There are people in every nation who hate us. In the normal sense (she can look up the word "normal"), people all over the world have a favorable opinion of the United States.

    Britain : 61% approval
    France : 75% (take that Go-Pee!)
    Russia : 56%
    Kenya : 83% ('cause their guy is in charge, I guess)

    Most countries that border Israel have low opinion of us. Also Pakistan. Fuck 'em.

  14. prommie

    I thought Connecticut was a restricted state? Lieberman is just their token, like when they let Hank Hill into the asian country club.

  15. prommie

    Isn't there some way you can get high on nutmeg? Like, if you are visiting someone in jail, aren't you supposed to bring them a jar of nutmeg and some KY or something?

    1. Warwhatgoodfor

      Nope, we used to carve phony ones and sell them to rubes who were passing through.

  16. rickmaci

    Dems generally do a better job of keeping the wingnuts from the leftish cuckoosphere off the stage when voters are looking.

  17. mavenmaven

    Time for her to do a mud wrestling match with her matched colleague on the extreme right, Ann Coulter.

  18. HELisforHEL

    OY, she's such an idiot. Please STFU people of Greenwich and lower Fairfield County. Because the rest of us in the state hate you all.

  19. oldswede

    Here in Connecticut, we are all too familiar with Miss Whitmun. For a good backgrounder, check this: Voter's Guide to Lee Whitnum The article is from 2008 but still valid and Miss Whitmum has only compounded her nasty reputation.
    First time out, she called her opponent, current Connecticut US Congressman, Jim Himes, a Nazi.

    1. Warwhatgoodfor

      God yes. She has even hit the big time rawstory.com with this one. So much to be proud of.

  20. Swampgas_Man

    See, all you anti-dittoheads? Liberals say all the things Rush said, only worse because they're Demoncratic wimminz! It's Bill Maher all over again!
