Strange Wording

Thursday, June 07, 2007
When did "pearl-clutching" as an insult (and a sexist & agist one at that) become such a popular catchphrase? And to describe Republicans, no less? Twice in an hour!

More heated debate on the Hill, when Lindsey Graham got all clutch-pearls over an amendment offered by Obama.... (Ana Marie Cox)

These law 'n order, national security tough guys are a bunch of pearl clutching, incoherent ninnies who don't have the integrity or the intelligence to protect a bunch of first graders crossing the street, much less the nation. (Digby)

Did I miss something or is this just coincidence? Or is Digby really Ana Marie Cox?

Okay, probably not.
