Left-Wing Snark Alert...

Stop reading now, my beloved right-leaning friends, if you don't want to see the snarky Dem in me raise her ugly I-didn't-feel-like-bothering-with-my-hair-this-morning head. (And I do love you all, because I think we liberals can be flaky at times, and your party at its best balances us out and helps us be a better country and serves as the yin to our yang. There are just a few right-wingers outside my circle of friends that I can't stand. Coulter, this means you.)

Well, you were warned.

NUCLEAR. The word is...NUCLEAR. Nu-cle-ar. New-clee-r. N-U-C-L-E-A-R. Say it with me, kids!

That is all.

And just so you know, I was also going to serve Biden up for using the term "Bosniacs", which made me picture a repressed people who are also animated and cat-like, until I did further research and learned that the Bosniaks are an ethnic group and some are Bosnian-s and some are not. Who knew? Joe Biden, apparently. Which is why I am not running for VP.

I know, it drives me totally crazy too. But to be fair, I've heard all sorts of folks say it that way. Including my friend whose father is a N-U-C-L-E-A-R physicist. And she even says it with a straight face when he's not around, so I can't imagine she's doing it just to annoy him.

After 8 years of Dubya mispronouncing the word, I thought it was an ominous to hear Sarah Palin doing the same thing. Though to be fair, given her beliefs about evolution/creationism and global warming, I'm pretty sure science isn't her thing. ;)
