    Sad to say, but phrases such as "pro-life" are extremely effective ways of stating GOP positions; they're what Lakoff means when he talks about "framing".

    Other exampes: "the death tax" for the estate tax, "right-to-work" for anti-union legislation. These and others are absolutely lipstick on a pig, and they've worked big-time for years.

      Lets face it, who is it who decides what memes live and die?  

      When it comes to how we discuss politics and policy, it's still the corporate media, and will be for quite some time.
