There is an annual contest at the University of Arkansas calling for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary term.

This year's term was:

"Political Correctness."

The winner wrote:

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of sh*t by the clean end. "

That's a member's sig line... and has been for a long time, IIRC.

I like it, and I stole it to be my sig on emails.

That is pretty good.

I was going to say that political correctness was the application of diplomatic behaviors long after diplomacy has failed.

I like the quote you posted even more.

If they say it is Politically Correct, it is Factually Incorrect.

Years ago it was much shorter I think.

Something like: "Political correctness is the proposition that it is possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."
