The National Conference of Editorial Writers has come up with a list of cliches that are currently plaguing our culture. I have two entries of my own to add.
From Wall Street to Main Street: Phrase spoken by someone who has little or no knowledge of either street, but has a great deal of experience on pundit street.
You drank the Kool-Aid: Term used by intellectually cornered conservative (usually one who is old enough to remember the 1978 Jonestown Massacre) during a charged political or cultural conversation. Following is an example of said usage.
Conservative: "This crisis is aaaaaaall in the lap of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac."
Other: "But what about the slow erosion of Glass-Steagall? What about the Securities and Exchange Commission slashing up the net capital rule in 2004?"
Conservative (after a moment of nonplussed eye-blinking): "I can see you drank the Kool-Aid."
