Euphemism Watch


A Wednesday rally in Portland asked Maine's two U.S. senators to help pass the jobs bill that remains stuck in the Senate.
The bill isn't "stuck." It faces a Republican filibuster. Supported by Maine's two sainted senators.

It seems to me that--at an absolute minimum--the Maine press has an obligation to inform the state's citizens that Sen. Snowe and Sen. Collins are blocking an up-or-down vote on extending unemployment benefits.

It not a difficult to explain. Unless you're trying hard not to.
