Someone PLEASE tell me why every “incident” that occurs in Washington has to have a “gate” put on the end. Obviously, we had Watergate to start it all. But, since then, why does every event du jour have to have the “gate”? Right now we have “Plamegate” spinning around. There was Monica-gate not that long ago. Contra-gate kept us entertained back in the 80s. Why is this necessary? Are journalists THAT lacking in creativity?
