Top 10 New Euphemisms from the Mark Sanford Affair


Bonus- The Word Guys get in on it.
Take this sentence...,referring to his staffers: "I let them down by creating a fiction with regard to where I was going, which means that I had then, in turn, given as much as they relied on that information, let down people that I represent across this state." Ah, creating a fiction! If only Sanford weren't the married governor of a state, such an act of creativity might earn him a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing — or at least a prize spot on mother's refrigerator.
Note to self: Explain to wife that I am not a lying bastard. I am a fiction creating bastard.
