"Doing a Stupak" (A new phrase has been coined)
I had to share this one with you.
A Facebook friend named Steve posted the following comment in response to Kathryn Jean Lopez’s article about the recent unpleasantness involving the politician B. Stupak.
“Who wouldda thought Stupak would get sold out by… Stupak?
“Today a new phrase is coined in the American political lexicon: “Doing a Stupak“, meaning taking an apparently principled stand against a proposal, only to sell out at the last minute on some cheap assurance that it’s no big deal.”
