In my newspaper column this week, I noted that the term "center-right nation" is now the word du jour for the elite media and Punditburo. We are being told that no matter how big a progressive landslide Tuesday may bring, our country nonetheless will always be a "center-right nation." The latest to invoke this is Charles Krauthammer in a column titled "McCain Offers Center-Right Nation a Center-Right Choice."
Anyhow, I flag this just to give everyone a heads up that we can expect this term to be used incessantly all the way up to and after the election. If the right does anything well, it is repeat catchphrases with the propagandistic discipline of a communist country's Ministry of Information. Now, fearing that the election is going to be a wholesale rejection of their ideology, conservatives are ramping up that propaganda like we've never seen.
