Can we think outside the box about throwing "shovel-ready" under the bus at the end of the day IMHO (and any other cliches you can think of)

I hereby nominate "shovel ready" as the leader in the clubhouse for 2009's most annoying phrase.

I'm not sure...I think we need to 'take you out of your comfort zone' and have a 'fierce conversation' about this first.

Good ones, Wendy, and thanks for stopping by!

I'm still digging out of the last 8 years of Bushisms.

How about we subvert the meaning of "shovel ready"? That might be easier than throwing it under the bus.

Example: The GOP is shovel ready. Senator Burris's career is shovel ready. Get the idea?
