What's your favorite example of government doublespeak? Believe it or not, this is work-related.
Thanks and sorry for the total misuse of the medium.

This is such a Kevin thing to do.
Coalition of the Willing had to have been one of the most uninspired coinages in recent memory.
I was going to say Peacemaker and Patriot missile.
What about "bringing democracy"?
Thanks guys--saved my butt. I could tell you what it was for, but then I'd have to euthenize you.
Don't forget the whole "Freedom Fries" fiasco, and while we're at it, the USA Patriot Act.
"Operation Iraqi Freedom"
This from today's op-ed in the Times: Bush's "tax cuts" = "service cuts"
wow, that one is stunning, especially in that it's an obfuscation that actually makes the meaning of "tax cuts" MORE clear.
