My friends, will we miss these presidential campaign phrases?

Monday’s St. Louis Post-Dispatch carried a whimsical piece about eight campaign phrases that may disappear from America’s lexicon for at least four more years. They are:

Joe the Plumber

Change

Country first

Redistribute

My Friends (McCain)/Ladies and Gentlemen (Biden)

Maverick

Yes We Can

Hockey mom

The writer omitted one phrase that I hope to never hear again in a campaign:

Measuring the drapes.
