Jerry Brown was caught on audio agreeing with an aide who called Meg Whitman a “whore.” (Audio below at 1:55)

Understandably, all the attention is focused on the “whore” comment.  But there was another Brown insult which has not received any attention. 

Beginning at 3:10 of the audio, Brown and his aides begin a discussion of Whitman’s proposed budget cuts.  A female voice says “Yeah, Jerry, we’ve got to focus on the police chiefs, we got to get them [inaudible].”  Another female voice in the background says “[Inaudible] I just want to make sure we talk about this.”  Brown then says (at 3:20):

“I’m going to hit that out of the park, not that they read.”

Compared to calling one of the most successful businesswomen in American history and a nominee for  Senate Governor a “whore,” mocking whether the police chiefs read is not as sensational.

Nonetheless, if I were a policeman in California, I’d be pretty upset with Brown’s snide and demeaning comment, which evidences a lack of respect.
