I've written before about some of this but like most things I say, it bears repeating. (Not because what I say is important, but because no one listens.)
One is the phrase "Meteroic Rise" as in so-and-so enjoyed a meteoric rise in state politics. Well, the simple fact is this: METEORS DON'T RISE, THEY FALL. Plain, simply and indisputably. There is no such thing as a meteoric rise,
Second is the phrase "bi-polar." What is something that is polar if not "bi." There is a North Pole and a South Pole. Two poles. There are never more than two poles. So, if one's personality wavers between two poles, why are they considered "bi-polar," not merely "polar"?
The final one (for today) is Republicans who call, for whatever reason, the Democratic Party the Democrat Party. That's just asinine.
