Janet Napolitano’s Nifty Newspeak Thesarus: by The Elephant's Child

(From Peter Kirsanow at National Review)

“It’s not amnesty. It is an exercise of discretion.”

It’s not a terrorist attack. It’s a man-caused disaster.

It’s not a global war on terror. It’s an overseas contingency operation.

It’s not the Ft. Hood massacre. It’s an instance of workplace violence.

It’s not a war. It’s a kinetic military operation.

It’s not a mandate. It’s a compromise.

It’s not taxing and spending. It’s an investment.

It’s not a a public-sector boondoggle. It’s a stimulus.

It’s not a duck. It’s . . .
