The administration re-branded our current imperial project from "Global War On Terror" to "Global Struggle Against Violent Extremism". I've personally always hated "GWOT" because it suggested the sound warm snot makes when it hits the pavement on a humid Bawlmer-summer day. "GSAVE" is a little better, but, honestly, it's still wrong; it suggests some sort of free software disk utility. Besides, don't these people know that acronyms.have.three.letters? But I'm just one of those liberals who has no new ideas and can only criticize. Which is why it's so marvelous that Suzanne Nossel at Democracy Arsenal scores a rhetorical twofer in this post wherein she makes fun of the new acronym and points out 10 things more important than a new acronym.
