Word Play Gets Political

You have to hand it to President Obama and his administration. He doesn’t just want to transform America, his actions are transforming our lingo, too.

He made “slow jammin’ the news” a new term. We have “ostrich economics” (self explanatory); to Breitbart, a way of revealing information about him; people speak of “Government Sachs,” with so many Goldman Sachs executives working for O; and the coffee party, a pathetic liberal answer to the Tea Party.

A new one has just come on the scene: Teavangelicals.

David Brody explains at CBN News,

When the Tea Party started its political rise, the clear focus was economic — specifically the U.S. deficit, taxes, and spending.

Social issues took a back seat, but that didn’t stop Christians from joining and strengthening this new movement.

The result was the “teavangelical,” conservative Christians who are part of the Tea Party or at least agree with their agenda.

They travel the country calling for a better America, a return to Judeo-Christian principles and economic plans for a deficit-free future.

They come in all shapes and sizes, from the farm, town square, and even Capitol Hill.

“Well, I absolutely am [a Teavangelical] because I believe that we are taxed enough already,” Tea Party Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., told CBN News.

“Government shouldn’t spend more money than what it takes in,” she said. “We should follow the Constitution. And I’m a believer in Jesus Christ, so I think that makes me a Teavangelical.”

This hybrid threatens to inflame the liberal media even more. If they didn’t like Tea Partiers, they’re going to hate Teavangelicals.
