A Fresh Potpourri of Spin

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Gleanings from the social and diplomatic fronts:

conscious uncoupling = Hollywood gooeytalk for what the tabloids call  “splitsville” or old-timey divorce.

unconscious coupling = psychobabble for hooking-up.

war weary = cop-outtalk for justifying execution of the head-in-sand maneuver in the face of imminent danger.

international community = UN talk for group of unnamed toothless nations whose support is often invoked in times of trouble

consequences = bravebabble for mystery marshmallow Big Stick.

off ramp = diplomatspeak for continuing pacifist pabulum offering to tiger who is eating your lunch.
