The "F" Word

There's a word that dare not be printed in our press or spoken in our media. It begins with F, and it's something the Republican party in Congress has been doing non-stop since January. Of course, there was a time not too long ago that this word littered the pages of our newspapers and rolled off the tongues of our pundits with ease, a time when it described the dastardly actions of a Democratic minority in Congress. Now that the tables have turned, however, we no longer hear a peep about it. To be sure, it's hard to discuss what's going on in Congress without using some expression tantamount to the "f" word, and so Reuters rummaged around in their word box of obfuscating synonyms to find the expression "procedural roadblock." I guess it's just more of that liberal bias in the media, right?
