Semantic groaning

19.September 2008

Two phrases I don’t ever need to hear again:

“Wow factor” – when did this come into vogue and when will it disappear?

“Shock and awe” – after seeing it in a few too many different contexts, I can’t take it any more. I kind of wish that whoever is elected passes a law outlawing all phrases coined by the Bush administration. That includes Homeland Security. What a silly faux-patriotism-inciting name.
