Fox Invents a New Word: Democraticallycontrolledcongress

Reported by Melanie - December 5, 2006 -

Prior to November 7, Fox News referred to congress as "the congress." As of November 7, "the congress" has become, "the Democraticallycontrolledcongress." Major Garrett used Fox's favorite new word today (December 5, 2006) during a report on Your World w/Neil Cavuto:

Robert Gates knows that "the political reality is, under new management in the 110th Democraticallycontrolledcongress, if he's to serve President Bush well, he's got to build up his credibility with Democrats..."

It's going to be fun to watch Fox people repeat this tongue twister over and over again for the next two years. Then again, if the Democrats do good work between now and 2008 and the Democraticallycontrolledcongress's approval rating rises above the pit it was in while the Republicans controlled it, this word will undoubtedly disappear.
