Skip to comments.Your Attention Please: "-ghazi" to Replace "-gate" in Naming Future Scandals and Cover-Ups (vanity)
Posted on 05/10/2013 2:45:52 PM PDT by jiggyboy
WHEREAS the root of the Watergate scandal and cover-up was the desire of a sitting President to be re-elected, and
WHEREAS the Watergate scandal and cover-up ultimately led to the impeachment and resignation of that sitting President, and
WHEREAS The Washington Post, a member in good standing of the Mainstream Media, initiated the investigations leading to that impeachment and resignation, and
WHEREAS the Mainstream Media continues, nearly forty years later, to regularly and publicly congratulate itself with an unwritten rule that scandals and cover-ups across all spectra of seriousness, malfeasance, and scope, without exception, shall be described with the suffix "-gate", and
WHEREAS the root of the Benghazi scandal and cover-up is the desire of a sitting President to be re-elected, and
WHEREAS nobody was left to die in Watergate, the Benghazi scandal is far worse a scandal and cover-up, and
WHEREAS it has come to pass that even MSNBC had a guest today who dared to talk about the impeachment of the sitting President,
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of these facts, it shall henceforth be more appropriate for the names of cover-ups and scandals to end with the suffix "-ghazi", and, when phonetically appropriate and descriptive, and for the prefix shall begin with "B" and/or end with "N".
I thank you for your consideration.
I love it. I’m gonna do it.
let me try that again
Fast and Furious = Gun-ghazi
Birth Certificate = Birth-ghazi
Solyndra et al = Green-ghazi
College records = Transcript-ghazi
White House tours cancelled = Tour-ghazi
Sequester-related duplicity = Sequest-ghazi
What? Was Watergate called Watergate-gate? Harrumph! Work with me here people.
If you use “Reggie Love-ghazi”, it almost sounds obscene.
It’s like herding cats. ;-)
tell it to Boutros Boutros-Ghali .
I second the motion. This is so much worse than Watergate it defies comparison.
A disgraced administration which is now a massive liability internationally. A disgraced president which half the nation clings to so bitterly no matter what he does (or fails to do). Yellow “journalists” who are complicit in denying, obfuscating, and ignoring high crimes and misdemeanors. And a vast entertainment industry which somehow has become our intelligentsia, celebrating each and every outrage.
I submit to you, sir, that we have indeed become Amerighazi.
However, you need to make one small correction - Nixon resigned before articles of impeachment were started in the House.
Could be we so lucky again?
Or, will we have to go the whole impeachment route again only to see the dimocratic senators place party loyalty over their personal oaths and duties to the Republic?
I saw a thread earlier today where some Senator said there’s no way this Senate would vote to impeach. That could only happen after the 2014 elections.
