Carol Platt Liebau: "Bitches" and "Hos" at the Oscars

"Bitches" and "Hos" at the Oscars

Apparently, it's A-OK for the words "bitch" and "ho" to be used during an Oscar broadcast -- they're lyrics in the song charmingly titled "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp."

But don't worry . . . the Academy still has standards. The words "f--k," "s--t" and a variation of the "n-word" are still verboten.

Ah, yes. The Academy Awards are such a lovely opportunity to showcase the finest American talent.

Thanks, Carol, for keeping an eye out. As our mainstream culture slides, I worry.

You mean some one actually WATCHES the Oscars? Sorry, I've got better things to do - and better people to watch!
