Those capering Watergate pranksters!

by Ted on August 16, 2005

Good catch from Tristam ShandyBob Dole’s tears for the persecuted journalists, and his grave concerns that “dozens of whistle-blowers [won’t be able to] share information about government wrongdoing”, are of quite recent vintage. (Apparently, the term “kerfuffle” hadn’t yet been adopted by Republicans when Dole made his Watergate speech.)

I suppose it’s a tribute to James Taranto that whereas Glenn Reynolds’ lasting contribution to the discourse is “Heh,” Taranto at least has propagated an actual word, Kerfuffle.

Oh, don’t be so harsh to Professor Reynolds. He also gave us “Indeed” and “I’m afraid that [insert hideous smear]”.

Careful, Ted. Chris B. will come after you for criticizing a wounded war veteran. ;-)
