From his story on Deputy Press Secretary Dana Perino temporarily filling in for Tony Snow while he gets cancer treatment:

Perino has been flooded with calls of support, including one, she says, from Education Secretary Margaret Spellings, who told her: “Put your big-girl panties on.”

Now that’s what I call an education secretary!

    WTF? Big girl panties? What the hell has she been wearing before this? Diapers?

    […] Michael Waldman and Justin Levitt have the quote of the day (yes, even better than the big-girl panties) in their WaPo piece on voter fraud: Firing a prosecutor for failing to find wide voter fraud is like firing a park ranger for failing to find Sasquatch. […]

    Maybe it means she’s wearing Teh Sexy Lingerie to boost her confidence…

    That’s so weird it’s funny.

    WTF? “Big-girl panties”?! I mean, I know perfectly well what she means by “big-girl panties,” but in context, that just seems kind of weird. Or maybe a whole shitload ofweird. Maybe even a metric long shitload of weird.

    I think I’ve actually heard the phrase before; I was just kind of tickled that the Education Secretary apparently used it to give the Deputy WH Press Secretary a pep talk…

    That imperative (together with “and deal with it”) has evidently gained some currency; you can now get it on bumper stickers and coffee mugs. News to me – I heard it on Multi Medium first!

    If these are the “grownups in charge”, why does everything they say sound like playground trash-talk?
