For starters, I’ve learned to hate the word, “unfortunate.” Yes, even when Sarah Palin uses it, (abusively.)
However, in this instance, it sounded like a threat.
I’m now beginning to hate the term, “common sense measures”, (near as much as ‘bipartisan’).
The measures they plan to take MAKE no common sense, but that is beside the point. Keep calling it that, and people will begin to wrap their arms around it.
NOT! At least not me, at any rate.
