Glossary: an anatomy of key memes, euphemisms, sneers, and innuendos in the Wall Street Journal and other GOP language factories, March 16-20, 2014

analysis paralysis: Obama as Hamlet–unable to act, lost in the labyrinths of his thoughts and ideals. (see also, “humiliation”).

civilization standards–always in decline. “Norms and habits” are said to be in a “moral decline”. (see also: “tearing down mores”).

eradication of biological parenthood: the ultimate outcome and agenda of gay rights.

humiliation: the result of “analysis paralysis”.

the poor are better off than ever: every day in every way being poor gets better and better.

real world solutions: (aka, “common sense solutions”). For women, NOT equal pay for equal work, day care, or reproductive health. Apparently the only “real” world is the market. Anyone who complains about its outcomes is a “whiner”.

revanchism: one of several archaic terms taken out of the Cold War archives and dusted off to beat Obama over the head about Putin and the Ukraine, joining such other oldies-but-goodies as satrap, atavistic, and vassal state.

tearing down mores: the Obama administration’s ultimate affect and agenda. Moral catastrophe looms.

thugs: spelled EPA, IRS.

tyrant: Obama, though he might be a sissy instead.

unchecked: a mandatory modifier for any “power” exercised by the Obama administration. (see also “tyrant” and “thug”)
