Debate Review: Goodbye to "Change"

If there is one thing we learned from tonight’s debates on ABC, it is that the word “change” – formerly so useful – must now be banned from the English language. I will regret losing it, but the poor parole has been put been in disgrace and rendered meaningless by a collection of nitwit politicians and pundits, so sayonara to “change.” It’s been nice knowing you. We give you your gold watch – bye bye. From here on in, when we hear someone say that he or she wants “change” or that he or she, worse yet, is a “change agent,” the offending “c-word” user shall be sent to Siberia – or Iowa.
