Word Choice, Word Choice

Coeur d’Alene Press Newspaper – Local and National News – Kootenai County, Idaho:

We urge Sen. Craig to remove all the clouds and resign. […] If Idaho cannot trust their most powerful representative in the nation’s capital.

On Monday, after the Capitol Hill newspaper “Roll Call” published the story of Craig’s arrest June 11 in Minneapolis and his conviction Aug. 8, the senator did not own up to his misdemeanor crime. He did not apologize to his family, to the fabulous staff that has supported him for more than a quarter century in Congress, to his constituents here in Idaho.

“Fabulous”? How often do you think sober Idahoan editorialists drop the word “fabulous” into articles when they’re not talking about a closeted gay Senator?
