Political Rhetoric 

I've been working on a long post about this subject, but I happened upon such a lovely, funny, pithy example, I had to share it immediately, with minimal comment.

Almost a slogan, but with none of the nastiness that sloganeering seems to bring out in all of us, (I'm not a fan of "Bush Lied, People Died), its author, the always witty Julia of Sisyphus Shrugged, will no doubt think I'm making too much of it, but it's tone has that perfect pitch which John Kerry's regime change at home remark so famously lacked.

A recession is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose your job.

A recovery is when Mr. Bush loses his job.

The point is sharp, the subject hits home, the disdain is clear, and the tone in unassailable, even by so sensitive a critic of incivility as the entirely uncivil Andrew Sullivan.

You can find it and the post it accompanies here.
