Shark and Awe

shock-and-awe-border

Can we please banish “shock and awe” forever from our lexicon?  I heard some pundits today saying that they think President-Elect Obama might keep the pre-emptive strike doctrine on the table during his presidency.  Let me give you a suggestion, Mr. President-Elect: take it off the table and never, ever use it.  It’s dumb and makes us look paranoid.  It’s like beating up the kid on the playground who looks at you funny because you’re paranoid he’s going to poison your cupcake later.  Anyway.
