Most annoying ever:
CNN (or FOX)(or MSNBC) cutting people off in mid-sentence to go to some idiotic segment full of sound and byte and signifying nothing.
White House ex-press secretary Joe Lockhart saying "atcept" rather than "accept."
All ex-White House press secretaries.
When a really obnoxious term gets incorporated into the vocabulary of the day, just because one high profile wanker starts using it. For example, when Samuel Berger said Milosevic was going to "hunker down." God, I had to listen to that stupid term over and over and over. The latest one is that awful, the "U.S. side" this, the "U.S. side" that some god damn Chinese translator thought up. And now all the international journalists are saying it. And they want US to apologize. I also find the new term ' Office of Homeland Protection' somewhat repugnant. It sounds too much like the term 'fatherland' from the Nazi era. But wait, I guess since we're now in that era again, per Bush, why not? Anyway, the term carries a sort of 'us against them' ring to it, which probably just reminds everyone why they want to blow us up in the first place. I don't want to blow us up. Let me be clear about that. I want to live. I just would like a more gender neutral term for Homeland Defense. I suggest 'Office of Domestic Security' or something else equally mundane. We don't need our juices flowing. Office of Homeland Sausage.
Also extremely annoying is when people say Saddam Hussain is evil because he would use biological weapons on his own people. So then it would be okay if he had used them on other people?
Every bug has its day, or two weeks.
