    This is the winner of the annual contest at the University of Arkansas and I think it's precise! LOL

    The OP's quoted phrase sums up pretty well the correct definition of Political Crookedness... err... Correctness, sorry. And no, it's not "good manners". There is a distinct differance between being polite and being P.C.

    A "polite" person can still have an open and honest discussion about problems concerning society and how to effectively solve them, without the explicit intent of offending anyone. Unfortunately, sometimes there are groups of people causing those problems who will take offense to the discussion, but "if the shoe fits..." and all that.

    A "politically correct" person will take great pains to avoid even acknowleding those problems exist, much less talking about them, for the risk of offending the people creating them. Or if forced to discuss them, will try to lay the blame for them on EVERY one within that society, in spite of clear evidence to the contrary. 

    Yet, strangely enough, many of the same people who try so hard to be "P.C." actually have very poor manners and tend to be very rude towards those who are not overtly P.C.

      It also indicates a serious humour failure.

        Sorry, lol... if your answer was intended to be sarcastic, I missed that (forgive me, it's early in the morning and my kids are driving me nuts!)... though, unfortunately... there very much ARE many who believe "politically correct" and "polite" are one in the same.
