The following is the 2007 winning entry from an annual contest at Texas A&M
University calling for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary
term. This year’s term was Political Correctness.
The winner wrote:
“Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical
minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd
by the clean end.”
