If The Federalist didn’t exist, where else would I get my daily dose of grammatical irritation?
Here’s today’s offering:
Democrats’ abolishment of the filibuster is one reason the GOP-controlled Senate under Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has been able to confirm so many federal judges.
The word is “abolition”, and spoils what was otherwise an excellent take on the current political situation. Even the barely-literate Microsoft spell-checking routine flagged that one, which makes me wonder what software the Federalist writers actually use publish their articles (absent, it seems, any kind of editorial review).
Probably NotePad, come to think of it. Then they don’t have to bother with all those messy issues of typesetting, spelling and grammar.
