Collective nouns, also known as venereal terms, have always been charming to me. What venereal term would you use to describe the numbers of Republicans aware that Rep. Foley was having internet sex with teenage pageboys? A loom of scandal hiders?
What venereal term might we use to describe the multitude of lies revealed by the reporter with more access to the White House than any other? A Denial of potentates?
Lastly what venereal term will we apply to poorly fought or unnecessary wars foisted by those in power as going much better than they actually are? A Malodor of Militarism?
Just some fun ideas.
Oh, and what will we call it when Democrats, having retaken the Senate expose a staggering number of lies and deceits undertaken by a power-mad White House and Republican Congressional leadership? A Peekaboo of Revelations?
I'm actually more relaxed than I've been in ages. I really do like venereal terms. I even have a venereal dictionary in my dictionary collection.
There's no insanity in the plans no matter what happens. I did away with the whole "angry democrat" thing after the '04 Presidential loss and decided to be active instead of being mad.
Book? What is this book thing you speak of? Is all human knowledge and experience not enshrined on the series of tubes known as teh internets?
Actually, I'm getting ready to go on a two-week vacation, when i look forward to reading a number of books.
