That One

As a "wordsmith" I thought I should chime in on McCain's use of the phrase. "That one" in last night debate.

Personally, I think it was a rude thing to call the Senator. But I am alarmed by the trend of summing up political events into shorter and shorter sound bites.


"We have nothing to fear, but fear itself."

"Read my lips, no new taxes."
George Bush

"That one."
John McCain

Sarah Palin

Sometimes shorter isn't better.
