Political Words

I just discovered this cool web app from the Sunlight Foundation for seeing and searching out the actual words our Congress folk are using, and allowing you to sort the references by party and region, and timeline: http://capitolwords.org/

Democrats for instance, just OWN the word “equality.”

The Word “Equality” as Used by Each Party

On the other hand, Republicans have really cornered the market on the term “Job-Killing.”

Usage of the phrase “Job-Killing” by Party

There HAS to be some real gold in this data, sometime when I have time I must go track down some more fun/obscure terms…
