During the 2008 election Ed Schultz said on his radio show that Sarah Palin set off a “bimbo alert.”
And there were other “bimbo eruptions,” as a top aide at the time described them.
He once even took to his blog to call yours truly a “bimbo” for the offense of quoting him accurately in a New York Post column.
And for the next several decades, the Bond girls are strictly from bimbo city.
Ed Shultz, a liberal talk radio host, blasted “bimbo Alert” before his commentaries on Palin.
There was another piece of information which bimbo gave us, more pleasing than any thing which he had said.
Eddie Carter interfered with the first man, bimbo Gaines with the second.
One day they were in earnest conversation, Jack relating his wrongs; while bimbo, seated on his bough, listened in silence.
Lefty with the ball, and bimbo Gaines leading him, his big body a shield.
For all the property bimbo owned was the earth in a little gully, which he himself was reclaiming.
1919, "fellow, chap," from variant of Italian bambino "baby;" first attested in Italian-accented theater dialogue. Originally especially "stupid, inconsequential man, contemptible person;" by 1920 the sense of "floozie" had developed (popularized by "Variety" staffer Jack Conway, d.1928). Resurrection during 1980s U.S. political sex scandals led to derivatives including diminutive bimbette (1990) and male form himbo (1988).
