    that rhyme with words that are viewed as insults. Well usually.

    I really am serious; we might detail how objectionable Boehner is but our vocabulary in doing so normally consists of words that wouldn't have made Queen Victoria blush no matter how damning they actually are.

      You have missed some choice comments, then. I don't know whether Vicki would have blushed, but we still haven't eradicated "pussy" for example.

      •  Well you got me on that one (4+ / 0-)

        It's not a word I'd ever use unless I were describing a being with four legs, fur and a floofy tail. I even avoid that usage. I'd prefer nobody accidentally feel insulted.

        •  I personally don't consider it an insult... (2+ / 0-)

          being compared with a beautiful, independent, sentient furry being who will scratch your eyes out if you step wrong and yet has people fawning over them ;). But maybe that's just me and my odd perspective on the world.

            adores being called Pussy and Princess Puss. Those are #10 words on the purrometer. They're dreamy eye-closers of words for the Puss.
            I hate using it as the epithet but will occasionally when deserved, when there's no other word that can cover it.

            I ♥ President Obama. ~ Yes, we did. Again.

        Being dressed down by an oh-so-tough bike punk chick after I referred to myself as a "pussy" in reference to my hill climbing skills. Her response was something along the lines of "I think you mean you're weak, but my pussy and every other one in the room made it here five whole minutes before you.You only wish you were a pussy, you piece of shit"
