Cliche of the month club

The most overused phrase last month, and the month before that, was "thrown under the bus." Just about every politician in the nation - and some overseas - was either throwing someone under the bus or being thrown under the bus themselves, or both.

Although we're only five days into September, "game changer" has quickly emerged as the most nauseating phrase of the late summer campaign season.

At least it's better than "change agent."

"Change agent" is fairly disgusting, but I don't see it finding its way into unrelated media stories the way "game changer" has.

You know what I tend to hear A LOT from the media, politicians, my friends, total strangers, and even a few talking birds ... "It is what it is."

I'm just sayin'

I do agree that "change agent" is worse... That sounds like something in detergent or a bomb.
