My Word Of The Year For 2006 Isn't "Truthiness."
Although it is a great one, along with "crackberry," "carbon neutral," and "new way forward in Iraq" and "path to citizenship."
But my favorite new phrase of the year (at least, it was new to me) was "Entrant Rights."
What's an entrant? Before this year, they were known as "immigrants." What's an "unauthorized entrant?" Before this year, they were illegal aliens.
And if there are "entrant rights," what are they? Well, according to people who use the phrase, every human being in the world has an inherent and inalienable right to live in America. Whether America wants them or not.
How stupid do you have to be to believe this idiocy? Ask President Bush, Sen. Kennedy and McCain and Gov. Deval Patrick. all of whom oppose defending our borders.
