Isn’t it hilarious how the media gets these new buzz words or phrases and overdoses on them? Remember the word “gravitas” from Cheney’s nomination to be George W. Bush’s running mate 10 years ago? There’s a new one now, and the first time I heard it I thought it was rather amusing but it is rapidly getting rather tiresome: “Circular firing squad”.

It strikes me that these people really need to get a life outside the D.C. Beltway and learn to communicate the way the rest of us do, which requires doing so without talking points, stylish words-of-the-day, and other such nonsense.

  1. I don’t watch or listen enough to the media to catch the phrases, though when Rush Limbaugh does his famous montages, it is easy enough to get the picture.
