...Earlier [today], the chief White House spokesman, Scott McClellan, rejected various critical descriptions of the program.

--New York Times

Oh, good Lord. Is that the next stunt the White House and its gang are going to pull -- they're going to accuse reporters and Democratic legislators of liberal bias if they refer to this as "spying" instead of "surveillance"? Last year, of course, they said you were a naked lefty partisan if you talked about "private" accounts rather than "personal" accounts in Social Security, or about the "nuclear option" rather than the "constitutional option" for ending filibusters in the Senate. I guess we're seeing this year's model.
