Senators Claire McCaskill And Carl Levin Call It Like It Is: "Shitty"

The word of the day, ladies and gentlemen, is "shitty." And we have Senators McCaskill and Levin to thank for that.


The inspiration was an email a Goldman Sachs supervisor sent to Daniel Sparks, referring to "a shitty deal" they pushed on their clients anyway. Sparks was being questioned at a Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations hearing, where the two Senators liberally quoted from that email. And now it even has a Twitter hashtag — although the New York Times still can't say it. Luckily, McCaskill and Levin have no such qualms.

This is similar to how it is hilarious when children swear. "Baby Landlord" is an excellent example.
