Sarah Palin: Concerned Linguist

That's not me, that's Wonkette. Here's the text:
  • Well, well look who’s suddenly so particular about the intended meanings of words corresponding to their usage! It’s Palin! She hates the name “Trooper-Gate” and would prefer that you refer to her gross abuses of power by their Christian name: “Taser-Gate.” [The Caucus]
Whatevs, but she's no linguist.

Note to self: Gotta find a way to turn the way back to better topics.

I was hoping Mr. Verb would notice that headline!

Sorry, Sarah. Trooper-Gate and Taser-Gate are two different scandals - both perhaps deserving of interest, but not the same.
