Quotation Of The Day: I Can't Believe I Quoted Bill O'Reilly

From his syndicated column,

First, I agree with this point about word usage, although O'Reilly's own overblown style makes the point less effective than it could be.
Let’s start with the phrase “at the end of the day.” Overused by pundits and politicians alike, those words are now making my ears bleed. Lights out on this one, please.
Second, a substantive point that should not longer have to be made, but sadly, it still does.
Obama is a Muslim. No, he’s not. His children were baptized in a Christian church. If he were a Muslim, the president would be damned just for that. He’s not a Muslim, and the folks who think he is are insane.
Finally, there's this conclusion.  I may quibble a bit and argue that the word "candidates" should be changed to"campaigns." but the point is valid.
So there you have it, from the heart. The two presidential candidates are boring enough. They don’t need any help from us. So let’s all band together and stop the tedium. Do it for your country.

It seems that there are certain words or phrases that become politically popular, and suddenly all other expressions are absent. What is with that?

"at the end of the day . . . in harm's way . . . kick the can . . . " and more and more.

Stop micmicing and be creative for once!!!!
