Washington, D.C.- "Snowed In" immediately comes to mind, literally and figuratively.
Luke Wright recently asked 'viners to pick one word, but really, a noun and an adjective makes for lively comment.
How creative are Newsviners? Very, I think.
We have always picked on our Presidents in some way or another. Woodrow Wilson, the architect of the United Nations and former president of Princeton was villified by the press. When Calvin Coolidge died, Dorothy Parker asked, "How can you tell?". FDR had his moments throughout his 16-year reign, and Truman was initially thought not up to the task.
Of the "modern" Presidents, perhaps only Kennedy was not so maligned. Or maybe the press was just more circumspect. After all, they studiously avoided any mention of his adulterous liasons that were the talk of the Legislature (often when someone whispered into LBJ's ear while presiding, his grin was usually upon hearing of the latest JFK exploit). Clinton made JFK seem tame, and the succession of Bushes have certainly vanquished civil liberties.
What will Obamaland portend in the ensuing years? Who can tell?
Certainly Newsviners will lend comment. But in the meantime, please limit them to two words.
Let the juxtaposing begin!
I'll start......how about,
