Turkey with a Side-order of Spinspeak Is Still Turkey

And now to go with your big holiday turkey here is some newly-minted post-election spinspeak:

realist = political fogspeak for “it’s OK to give away the farm to the enemy as long as we can get the boys home for Christmas.”

situation = cosmeticspeak for a war that you would like to make disappear and that you are politically committed to lose.

ill-advised = corporatespeak for a disastrous and truly stupid idea from which you wish to extricate yourself with a shed or two of grace.

engage = forked-tonguetalk for suggesting that you can somehow wheedle concessions out of an opponent who already has deprived you of your trousers.
