"of course" and "obviously"

They are the most overused words by conservatives:

“Of course we want to get out of Iraq.”

“Obviously no one cares more about the suffering in New Orleans than I do.”

“Obviously no one wants war.”

“Of course we want to find out how the information was leaked.”

Once you’ve tuned in to those words, you can’t listen to a Dick Cheney interview or Rush Limbaugh monologue without hearing them every other sentence. And of course it doesn’t tend to be when things are actually obvious.

The most overused word by progressives? Kabuki. They’re tired of the kabuki dance between Bush and Congress! They’re sick of it!
