American politics: The pending expletive shortage

« previous post | next post »

Charles Pierce, "Hillary Clinton Has Run Out of F*cks to Give", Esquire 8/28/2015:

My goodness, the special snowflakes of the elite political media are all a'quiver because Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is running for president of the United States, has decided to talk like somebody who wants to be president of the United States, which is to say, she's started to talk like someone whose big bag of fcks to give is running very, very low.

Some politico-linguistic background:

"The number of fucks you need to not give" (2/11/2015)
"Hyperbolic scalar indifference" (7/14/2015)
"Expletive deficits" (7/18/2015)
