How do you feel about the term "trollop?"

We've all heard by now that John McCain allegedly called his wife the "C" word, but the man who claims he heard him also says he used the "T" word in the same sentence, which is documented in the book, The Real McCain by Cliff Schecter. Says The Raw Story:

"John McCain's temper is well documented. He's called opponents and colleagues 's**theads,' 'assholes' and in at least one case 'a fu$#*ng jerk.'" Here's a lesser known factoid about him: Apparently, his high school nickname was "McNasty."

But according to Schecter, he really went over the edge when his wife Cindy insinuated that he was losing some of his hair:

"In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, "You're getting a little thin up there." McCain's face reddened, and he responded, "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you c$#t." McCain's excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days."


Now, for all you young uns out there who have probably never even heard the term, Webster's (you've heard of them, right?) defines a trollop as, "a vulgar or disreputable woman; especially: one who engages in sex promiscuously or for money," basically you know, a w----, or a scrub or whatever it is the kids say these days. At any rate, the term has now entered the popular lexicon, and it certainly supports the point that McCain opposition, and heck, even supporters have made that he is, in fact, really, really old.

So come on ladies, I just gotta know: Has anyone ever called you a trollop!?
