"When you're trying to negotiate a deal, you don't walk in and slap your
opponent and call him an ignorant slut."

Though I believe this is referencing Dan Ackroyd's famous spiel on SNL,
where he and Jane Curtain played straight faced newcasters presenting their
"Point/Counterpoint" opinions in a measured newscasterly tone as they tore
into each other. Dan's begins his counter point with "Jane, you ignorant
slut."
