Bad verb

Tom Delay, in case you hadn't heard, has said that he'd like to bitch-slap Paul Krugman, NYT op-ed columnist and object of lots of bile from the right. Keith Olbermann tonight defined 'to bitch slap' as to slap someone like a bitch would. In fact, there's ambiguity in how people have come to understand the word, like in the Urban Dictionary entries, here: For some, the agent is the bitch and for others it's the recipient of the slap. I don't use the term myself and don't have any idea.
