This is not an original observation, but I’m sick and tired of gate being apended to every political feeding frenzy that comes down the pike. Watergate was a sui generis scandal that was rooted in the sick, twisted and paranoid psyche of Tricky Dick. Gate has been stuck on everything since the Trickster declared his mother a saint, and hotfooted it to San Clemente. It is time to show gate the gate as a political suffix.

That is all.

  1. The upside is that the -gate suffix is becoming a rather effective indicator of laziness or stupidity in reporters/bloggers/anyone discussing news.

  2. Any suggestions for a replacement suffix (let’s face it, people don’t care about a news story without a suffix)
