Loser's Guide to Life
I'm not really interested in politics, just in word use. This thing I found on Yahoo News contains a curious example of poor wordsmanship. In describing responses to the possibility that US president Obama make a short speech to schoolchildren as the year begins, they write:
Some conservative critics feared that the aim of the speech was to recruit US kids to the liberal cause and brainwash them with socialism.
I don't think “critics” is really correct here. They mean something like “loonies” or “bugfuck insane rightwing freaks”.
