Gail Collins writes today:
Male invitees to an event for Florida Congressman Steve Southerland were told to “tell the misses not to wait up” because “the after-dinner whiskey and cigars will be smooth & the issues to discuss are many...”Misses? Really? (And since it goes on to say "Whatever you do, don't tell her the night's menu includes ...", they don't mean "misses".)
If you're going to indulge in that faux-folksy style, you really ought to learn to spell it.
(It's very funny that Southerland's campaign's response to being called on this is to point out it was six months ago, already, geeze.)
