OK. It's out of my system. Although I can't promise not to call any of our "leaders" an asshole in the future.
I'm somewhat enamored of the word, it's true. And I'm angry.
But it's been brought to my attention that if I would at least drop the, well, "You-Know-What of the Week" term down to something a little more palatable, it might be better received. Well, alrighty.
I don't have anything concrete to offer as a replacement term this evening (wanker is taken) but I'll work on it.
And I'm sure I'll have plenty of material for another "____ of the Week" by Wednesday.
