Dear Everyone

Stop adding “gate” to the end of scandals. You all sound like morons. If you’re desperate to give a cutesy name to the Foley scandal, I suggest “Perv Dome.” This has been bothering me at least since “Lewinskygate” came into wide use.

  1. For someone who is nonconfrontational you certainly can certainly combust a fire with your sporadic spark. Some days you really want to tell us how you feel but then you back down and write nice. Why is that? Why are you afraid to spar?

  2. I’ve always liked the sound of Whitewater. It seems like it could be a Washington scandal, but also a refreshing soda pop.

  3. I’m personally waiting for The Gate-gate scandal. Now THAT one will show those damn politicians what we’re made of.

  4. Adding “gate” to the end of every scandal name because of Watergate makes about as much sense as adding “water” to the end of every (non)scandal name because of Whitewater. That is, none.

  5. While we’re at it, let’s quit adding “aholic” to words, as in “workaholic” and “chocaholic.” What, a workaholic is addicted to workahol?

  6. Holy cow! I go away from the internet for a couple days and everyone has a party in this thread. I agree with everything everyone said. This is the most agreeable I’ve been in years.
