    Default Definition of Political Correctness

    I don't know where this came from(I would list the author if I could) but it's just too funny not to share.

    "Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical, possibly ultra-liberal minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

    Sounds just about right...even though I'd be classified as "ultra liberal"...I've never much understood political correctness?

    I mean..does the term "midget" mean more to you than "vertically challenged"?

    Yeah! But, under-tall meaning just shorter than average or under-tall meaning "dwarf"...most politically correct terms aren't as specific..
