Ideas missing in action

Amazing how fast some slogans and concepts drift out of date and out of the public consciousness.  It's the fate of many ideas assocated with the president and his friends, especially over the last year to a year and a half.  Seems to me that the following are definitely now MIA (missing in action):

  1. Bring it on.

  2. Stay the course (officially dead and denied, now).

  3. Mission accomplished.

  4. Coalition of the willing.

  5. Osama bin Laden.

  6. Dead enders.

  7. Compassionate conservatism.

  8. The American Empire.

  9. The party of values.

  10. Freedom fries.

  11. Old Europe.

Here's hoping we make it an even dozen by adding to the list-- "The Republicans will retain control of the Senate and House."
