I find that claim about Fitzgerald hard to swallow. Up here in Maine, "wicked" is such a part of everyday language that I have to believe it's been used here a lot longer. But maybe I'm wrong. Whatever.

#29 - I wish I had a nickel for every time Obama "threw someone under the bus". If you listen to right-wing media for as little as a week or so, you begin to notice the same phrases turn up, over and over again. The result is that when I hear them used in conversation or argument, it's often pretty hard evidence that the person is just repeating things, without really bothering to think about them.
It's kind of like certain liberals and their "white privilege". Everyone should stop repeating mindless cathcphrases.

#21 - re: "vatican laser tag arena"
The rapture is not a part of Catholic theology. You'd probably be able to find some who kind of believe in it, but it's certainly not dogma.

#18 - Hey, asshole, I'm just defining a word for you, and giving you a little history lesson to boot. I never said the white government was "kind" to blacks, and I never said violent resistance wasn't justified. Don't put fucking words in my mouth. Thanks.
