Certain extremists have emerged from the depths like fiends from Hell and spewed obscenities into our otherwise rational language. Such negative terms (abortionists, socialists, racists, <slur removed>, fascists, <slurs removed>, rapists, incest, masturbation), and phrases ("I am not a witch, I Am You;" "I'll take you out;" " get some balls;" "man up;" "Obama Is A Muslim/Kenyan") are used by Tea Party adherents to influence our votes. If we elect these psychos, they will lead us to The Promised Land. You betcha, wink, wink.
I make it a priority when election time rolls around to NOT listen to any campaign jargin. From either parties.

New generation? Maybe.
You're off on a good start, calling people psychos. Not.
P.S. You left out several phrases. Like "buck up", one of Obama's faves.
Oh that's right----you're only mocking conservatives I suppose!
wink wink back atcha.
