A catchphrase gone before its time

In shocking news, today we mourn the untimely passing of our nation's most beloved presidential catchphrase.

"Stay the course" unexpectedly passed late yesterday as its life support system could not keep up with the worsening health of the three-year-old.

"Stay the course" is survived by the beleagured "adapt to win", "making progress" and "hard work". The time-worn catchphrase will be missed by all as it served as a figurehead for maintaining a positive outlook on a gloomy and unending war in Iraq and served as the president's most-used catchphrase ever.

A memorial service is scheduled at Merriam-Webster memorial catchphrase worshipitorium Wednesday morning at 9:30 AM.

A luncheon follows in the worshipitorium's dining hall following the service. Attendees are asked to bring a dish to pass.

Mourners are asked to make donations to a memorial fund in lieu of flowers.

A moment of silence will be observed next Monday at 11:04 AM

Don't forget "together forward" (but you go first).

Didn't right-wingers have a collective aneurysm when Clinton messed around with the definition of "is?" This administration has been redefining all sorts of terminology and phraseology on an almost weekly basis.
