Bleh. These two use the English language like clowns use makeup: to cover up their true intentions while they play a calculated role. Just as clowns do, they can elicit a range of emotions from their viewers-- amusement or irritation or outright primal fear-- but can they ever be taken seriously?

Of course, it's not just businessmen who employ this little tactic. The craziest people I have ever had the misfortune to meet have all tended to favor a particular blend of gibberish and name-dropping in their daily speech. I used to think it was just inborn English-major pedantry, but it's quite possible that people like this are really, truly, deeply insane.

Which is a sad thing to consider, because they're everywhere.

So... yeah. Hey look, a link! It needs updating. Weasel words are ever-evolving.
