Waiting for the inevitable

At some stage the slow transformation of Bush administration rhetoric will reach its final destination, and, drunk with power, Scott McClellan will insist that the press refer to Republican Social Security plans only as "orgasmaccounts." Shortly thereafter the press will be required to no longer refer to "Democrats," only "America-Haters." I await the day I'll see on the bottom of my TV the letters "Teddy Kennedy AH-MA."

Regardless, I hope we can all agree that while words do carry political charge, there's no need to describe anybody's plans only with the words they use, though it's always acceptable to do so even if they're not using the words anymore.
