And a Good Day to You, Too!

WaPo: "We heard a number of complaints last week because we used the word 'catfight' to describe a disagreement between two distinguished members of Congress—Pelosi and Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.). To those who civilly articulated reasons why the term is inappropriate, we say: Point taken."

Not "We're sorry," just "Point taken." And only to those who civilly articulated the very, very new concepts about why describing a professional disagreement between two eminent leaders of our country as a catfight is inappropriate. The rest of you who did not respond civilly to our offensive behavior can go fuck yourselves.
