ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

An Inspired Notion!

A contributor, but not "made" conspirator, known only as Desert Rat, who I have known since just after the passing of the last Triceratops, has suggested (see comment on the immediate previous post) that we do away with this "gate" stuff as a description of scandal and instead use "quiddick" as in Chappaquidick.

This seems to me to be an inspired notion. Why is every scandal irrevocably consigned to remind us of Richard Nixon (R.I.P.)? There are other malefactors, some of whom are still around and pretending to pass judgment on others.

Air Americaquiddick?

Hmmm...
