But What Do Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha Think of Scott McClellan's New Book?
We all know what the Sex and the City ladies think about overpriced shoes, hilariously awkward fashion, cartoonish and formulaic plot lines, never riding the subway, and sleeping with every freaking guy you meet on the street. They love all of it! This stuff has been well documented over the years. We’ve assisted Charlotte through her fear of anal sex, sympathized with Carrie when she farted in front of Mr. Big, ridden any number of cock horses along with Samantha, and tried our best to coax big ole lesbian Miranda out of that fuchsia closet of hers. But believe it or not there are some things—even in these days of 24-hour Sex and the City movie coverage—that we don’t know about these dingbats.
I can’t help but wonder: What do the Sex and the City girls think of the new tell-all book by former Bush White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan, What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception?
McClellan's new book, which has no Sex in the City movie tie-ins.
Will they be discussing it at Saturday brunch any time soon? Will Carrie be able to read between its lines to draw out some facile conclusion about the dynamics between women and men? Will Miranda scowl at it, roll her eyes, and say something bitchy about Brooklyn? Will Samantha f*ck it? Can Charlotte read?
I guess we’ll have to wait until the movie to find out. Thank God it comes out tomorrow!
