    So true that I laughed out loud when I read the title. Journalists like short-hand techniques such as this one for getting things to stick in peoples’ minds. Hopefully in the future we get another scandal that can provide a little more creativity. For instance, the recent Mark Sanford scandal was pretty wonderful with its “I’m going hiking on the Appalachian Trail” narrative.

    Well before that scandals were called “The X Scandal” (as in The Scandal of Teapot Dome) or “The X Affair” (as in The Dreyfus Affair). So that probably wasn’t very creative either!!
