I'd add "Rock Star" to the list and and sticking "gate" on the end of every scandal.

I refuse to comply with the last one. Barry should continue to get his name affixed to every disaster he creates and/or inspires.

BTW - you should have saved this for a day thread . . . . :p

I agree with this sentiment. 'Watergate' was the name of a building. The building didn't have jack to do with Nixon's various issues.

This is like tacking 'World Trade Center' on the end of every terrorist action. :rolleyes:

Yeah, that was passe after "Iran-contra gate", even though the media kept it up all the way through "Monica gate" and whatever scandal they are adding it to now. The Monica situation gave them so many opportunities to creatively use words, too. They really blew it (see, even I can do it!).

7 of the phrases mentioned tie directly into Obama. No wonder they want them banned. And I thought terrorist and terrorism was banned too?:D
