Kerfuffles Is Famous

Check it out, y’all. South Park Kerfuffles got a mention by W:

CLEVELAND – President Bush is known as a plainspoken man, a straight-talker. So how did a word like “kerfuffle” come out of his mouth?

It’s not an everyday word; it means a commotion or fuss. Bush casually used it during a question-and-answer session after a speech at the City Club here. Someone had asked about his administration’s warrantless surveillance program, which has stirred concern about whether it exceeds the bounds of his authority and violates the law.

Saying the program had “created quite a kerfuffle in the press,” Bush gave his rationale for authorizing it.

No question, the program has riled some Republicans and Democrats. But Bush may be the only politician who says it has caused a kerfuffle. An aide said he has heard Bush use the word privately before, but not in public.

Pretty cool, huh?

At least the press is getting that much closer to calling the program what it really is: warrantless terrorist surveillance, rather then domestic spying.

    Thanks for the shout-out. I think the word “kerfuffle” originated with James Taranto, and his use to be my favorite blog, so I named it in honor of his word, “kerfuffle”, which I loved. Mr. Pirate, I have redesigned your site for you: The new Pirate’s Cove. Take a gander.

  2. Cool!!!!! I love it!. Thanks, Kerfuffles.
