A few words and phrases I have added to my Dead Pool for 2010 in faint hope of their imminent demise:
1. Lawyer up
2. Amour propre
6. Mash up
7. Hide the decline
8. Put me some knowledge
9. Not so much
11. First African-American (fill-in-the-blank)
12. Man-caused disasters
13. Religion of peace
14. Health care reform
15. Dead pool
I have a million more, but I'd rather read your nominations at the January assizes of the Court of Peeves, Crotchets, & Irks, with all due apologies to James J. Kilpatrick.

*Any and all golf double entendres re Tiger Woods.
*using "ask" as a noun
*any and all transmogrification of Obama's name
*"let me be clear" (it has now become a euphemism for "I'm lying to you.")
- Using "learning" as a noun.
- Hearing "The system worked." Unless it's a reference to my digestive system.
BTW, "assizes" is such a beautiful word, referring as it does not only to a judicial inquest or proceeding, but to the manifold dimensions of multitudinous buttocks.
Is #7 like hide the salami?
For #11, is it too late for President Hussein to be the first a-hole? If so, how about the leading a-hole?
You wanna 86 the term "teabagging?"
God damn it.......and just when I was getting good at sneaking up on the missus while she slept.
My ultra lib neighbor has been given his two free-fers. He is aware that the next time he calls me a "Teabagger" he will be shitting teeth. I told him that as I didn't call him vile sexual names in front of his kids I wouldn't stand for him doing it either. He now knows that if it happens again, they will watch as he gets the crap kicked out of him. Maybe it's time for people like "Tingles" Matthews to get their asses kicked for doing it. By asses kicked, I mean for someone to get behind him and as forcefully as possible repeatedly apply the toe of his boot to Tingles' ample posterior.
What about "At the end of the day...". I want to strangle all who use this line.
Gerry N: After you have finished with his teeth, please deliver a swift kick to his tiny teabag. Thanks :)
How about "the (fill in the blank) process?" The vetting process....the election process...the waiting process...the poor elocution process...the being an asshole process. We are a nation obsessed with process.
My biggie is "I'll be honest with you...".
So, what, you've been lying to me all the rest of the time?
The only one that's been getting on my nerves lately is "sustainability."
'Make no mistake', I wish Bam would be 'perfectly' clear just once.
There is the old standard, 'We'll have to agree to disagree', which to my knowledge has never been uttered by a conservative.
Here are a couple of mine:
1- _______ czar
2- Move forward
3- Run it up the flagpole
Oh, I'm not done with "hide the decline" just yet. Not until Al Gore is publicly pilloried for his mendacity.
"under the bus"
You and I need to "bone up" on number twelve...if I remember correctly, the last time we had a practice run...it was a blast.
Good list. Please include Transparency and Gravitas.
The very idea. Whining about a collection of consonants and vowels while children are eating each other in Detroit.
Idiom fags, each and every one of you. Shame. Now send me money.
"Stimulus" and "bailout" ... I would like not to ever hear those again, please.
"Not to the best of my knowledge."
"This is not a problem, this is an opportunity for innovation."
pman, I'm with you. End of the Day must end.
erica, I'm offended by the indiscriminate use of the term 'vetting'. Where I tend bar, to 'vet' indicates to all involved that a complete and thorough exam performed by a thorough and qualified individual has occurred.
These MSM fuckers incorrectly use vetting as a synonym for a shitty Wiki search. The MSM are wild ass guessers, no science or math required.
And another thing, why is 'people of color' OK, and 'colored people' is not OK?
Ace, if you are reading, I'm leaning towards Indonesian Imbecile as this month's go-to descriptor.
I don't believe I indicated in what context I used vetting, except that it is "a process." This is why I no longer blog. Bowel-scraping and eye-gauging hold more appeal for me at this point.
Athletisism, every time I hear some hack sportscaster utter this non-word I cringe. Another waste of air is " they control their own destiny" Destiny is by nature a controlling factor out of the control of mortal man.
And what's up with Transperent? That seems to have become the buzz word of the decade.
And besides, my "hide the decline" t-shirt arrived today.
