And, of course, the right-wing nut jobs over at World Net Daily are having a shit fit about this, so far as to produce a fun little YouTube clip:


I’m sure the English language has no room for additions, modifications, or updates. It’s the same language it’s been since the vernacular became standard political communication in the 1400s.
