  •  Gingrich dog whistle (0+ / 0-)

    And I think Gingrich is using the psychologically effective words like "cave in" and "dead loser" as dog whistles to make sure that the Republicans DO NOT compromise or make a deal with the president. When such deals are termed as "cave-ins," "dead losing" and "capitulation" (all deeply negative) then it becomes more difficult for the members of the congress to work together and satisfy their constituents at the same time.

    It is time that we pay attention to language.

    It really is time.
