… Name Calling …

September 11th, 2014 by dk

If we can’t agree what to call our enemies, how can we unite to defeat them? I’ve heard them called ISIS, ISIL, the Islamic State and the so-called Islamic State. Of all the options, President Obama continues to use the wonkiest and least popular — ISIL. He did the same when talking to us about “Pockeeston.” It makes him seem peeved that we can’t speak correctly. (Other examples.) When he wants us to think like him, I wish he was willing to talk like us.
