The Oldest Profession

Last night was the final debate between the California gubernatorial candidates, former governor Jerry Brown and former Ebay CEO Meg Whitman. There was one personal moment during the face-off when Brown was asked about the recent incident of someone on his staff calling Whitman a "whore". Brown apologized, but Whitman tried to make the most of it.
Just for review, Whitman has spent a scandalous amount of money to win the her political race, over $100 million and counting. And a whore is someone who sells her ass for someone else's personal pleasure. So considering that Whitman is the one who's paying hard earned money for the pursuit of personal gratification, it seems like Brown's staffer got it wrong. Whitman is involved in a shameful, unseemly relationship, but she's not the whore, she's the john. You've come a long way, baby.
