Did anybody else hear Frank Luntz nearly shit a brick on All Things Considered this afternoon?
I only caught about 2/3 of the segment, and I can’t seem to find the audio, but here’s the summary:
Luntz was on with George Lakoff in a segment about American’s slowly blossoming cluefullness over the Iraq Occupation.
That’s right - “occupation.” Lakoff referred to it that way over and over and over again, and Luntz came as close to blowing a gasket as anybody ever gets on NPR save Bill O.
It was pretty funny coming from the guy responsible for “death tax,” “partial birth abortion,” “climate change,” “healthy forests,” and Social Security “personal accounts.”
Is it just me, or did Luntz actually seem scared of that word? Ocuppation. Occupation. Occupation.
Enjoy your own medicine, fucker.
Lame, I know. But these days, if you stick a straw in front of me, I’ll grasp at it.
