unclear option? “never mind”

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 8:43 pm

No matter what the Senate filibuster compromise today may mean, one thing is very

nu-clear to me: “nuclear option” belongs on the Banished Words List.  So, join

Ellen Goodman and myself by nominating it for the LSSU 2006 List.  But, please,

let’s not wait for January 1st.  Let’s stop using the silly phrase outside of the strategic

war context right now (that means you, too).

say, “Never mind.”
