Comical Connecticut Senate Candidate Cries ‘Whore’ During Debate

by Jim Newell

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.

Steverino247 April 6, 2012 at 1:05 pm

She's pregnant?!

Barb April 6, 2012 at 1:24 pm

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.

Chichikovovich April 6, 2012 at 1:28 pm

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.

Barb April 6, 2012 at 1:40 pm

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!"

BigSkullF*ckingDog April 6, 2012 at 1:32 pm

Gross barb, gross.

Chet Kincaid April 6, 2012 at 1:38 pm

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!!

HELisforHEL April 6, 2012 at 3:21 pm

Baby Batter. Available now at WalMart.

Boojum April 6, 2012 at 9:57 pm

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?

Steverino247 April 6, 2012 at 2:46 pm

See what you started, Steverino247, you bastard!

Mmmm…cheezy griT…delicious.

Callyson April 6, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Are you saying something's wrong with his gear?

Dashboard_Jesus April 6, 2012 at 11:38 pm

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

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ April 6, 2012 at 1:05 pm

"I'm not a whore. I'm you."

Boojum April 6, 2012 at 9:59 pm

But, I'm a whore.

HistoriCat April 7, 2012 at 9:31 am

Personally, I'm more of a slut.

Boojum April 7, 2012 at 9:43 am

Oh, sure, give it away. Drive the price down for those of us who work for a living!

MLHencken April 6, 2012 at 1:05 pm

Great, just what we needed up here.

In her defense, Chris Murphy will have sex for money.

HippieEsq April 6, 2012 at 7:54 pm

Probably not with BIBI though.

gullywompr April 6, 2012 at 1:08 pm

What a nafka.

Callyson April 6, 2012 at 1:49 pm

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 …

Chet Kincaid April 6, 2012 at 1:56 pm

Is "Israel" code for "On Birth Control" ? I can't keep up with the lingo.

sullivanst April 6, 2012 at 1:09 pm

See, both sides are crazy.

Designer_Rants April 6, 2012 at 1:12 pm

She needs to hook up with that crazy chin dude from AZ.

Deportably_Jose April 6, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Key difference:
For Democrats, the primaries are a winnowing process on the crazy

For Republicans, it's a refining process.

sullivanst April 6, 2012 at 1:44 pm

Also, quantity, nastiness and extremity of craziness.

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

Bachmann after an H₂O₂ infusion.

Boojum April 6, 2012 at 10:03 pm

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.

BigSkullF*ckingDog April 6, 2012 at 1:10 pm

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.

weejee April 6, 2012 at 1:19 pm

That sounds much better than wrapping your Peeps in shrouds of mourning.

I'd say sweet, but with all those Peeps that would be redundant.

lowaltflier April 6, 2012 at 1:21 pm

Sounds like the best Passover Sedar ever.
Shalom.

C_R_Eature April 6, 2012 at 1:23 pm

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

BigSkullF*ckingDog April 6, 2012 at 1:26 pm

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

C_R_Eature April 6, 2012 at 1:32 pm

Outstanding. I know you've seen this before but, hey, it's a High Holy Day Convergence so: BEER.

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

Chichikovovich April 6, 2012 at 1:34 pm

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?

George Spelvin April 6, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Are we related?

flamingpdog April 6, 2012 at 1:37 pm

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.

sullivanst April 6, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Those look more like the marks of the stupid stick.

MLHencken April 6, 2012 at 1:50 pm

I say we set her up with Basil Marceaux.

Chet Kincaid April 6, 2012 at 1:50 pm

With a restraining order!

Warwhatgoodfor April 6, 2012 at 5:45 pm

Only if it comes with free beer. And three bags.

Negropolis April 7, 2012 at 12:59 am

Verily and for true.

Wait, wha?

ManchuCandidate April 6, 2012 at 1:10 pm

If this were a GOPer primary, they would have crowned her queen of US America.

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

Senators playing with whores, on the other hand …

Boojum April 6, 2012 at 10:09 pm

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.

C_R_Eature April 6, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Needs moar spittle, also.

It's great to see how far we've come in this country, when someone with a clear case of Tourette's can BALLHAIR!

LiveToServeYa April 6, 2012 at 2:08 pm

I can only read the above comment 1 time out of 5 without LOLing.

SayItWithWookies April 6, 2012 at 1:22 pm

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.

SheriffRoscoe April 6, 2012 at 1:41 pm

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.

Boojum April 6, 2012 at 10:10 pm

"Whore of Babylon" comes to mind.

MarionNYNY April 6, 2012 at 1:24 pm

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?

SheriffRoscoe April 6, 2012 at 1:26 pm

One crazy ass bitch spoils the whole barrel.

Boojum April 6, 2012 at 10:11 pm

You can buy bitches by the barrel in Connecticut?

Negropolis April 7, 2012 at 1:02 am

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.

WiscDad April 6, 2012 at 1:29 pm

On the other hand, she may gain unexpected support from Tourette's sufferers.

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.

catdanse April 6, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Maybe she'll bring back her John Kerry Scrapbook.

Callyson April 6, 2012 at 1:40 pm

"…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?

Designer_Rants April 6, 2012 at 4:54 pm

I call people ignorant all the time. But not to their face, nor on camera.

Chet Kincaid April 6, 2012 at 1:44 pm

She should be debating Pam Geller. Now there's a crazy who-er fight I'd pay to see!

Callyson April 6, 2012 at 5:03 pm

Orly Taitz vs. Lee Whitnum–it's on!

HippieEsq April 6, 2012 at 7:59 pm

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

Callyson April 6, 2012 at 1:45 pm

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…

Antispandex April 6, 2012 at 1:54 pm

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.

Barrelhse April 6, 2012 at 1:55 pm

That Lee Whitman is so stupid. She can't even spell her last name!

JustPixelz April 6, 2012 at 2:00 pm

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.

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?

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

If ever there is a correct situation in which to use the word whore it is with regard to American politicians and Israel.

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.

Warwhatgoodfor April 6, 2012 at 5:41 pm

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