Glossary of political rhetoric
By Byron McNutt

EVERY FIELD HAS special words and expressions, and politics is no exception. About 26 years ago, economist Thomas Sowell offered this glossary (with a few tweaks) of political rhetoric used by politicians and the media.
Crisis: any situation you want to change.
Compassion: the use of tax money by Democrats to buy votes.
Insensitivity: objection to the use of tax money to buy votes.
