From Campaign Outsider’s Meme Alert® desk:
The quite likely NCIS -inspired “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” is sweeping the political opinion-industrial complex.
Witness last week’s Weekly Standard editorial, “A Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Presidency?” Here’s the lede:
The single most damning story about President Obama so far is one we know courtesy of his national security adviser, Jim Jones. Visiting the newly installed military commanders in Afghanistan in late June, Jones told General Stanley McChrystal that if he requested more troops any time soon, Obama would have a “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” (i.e., “What the f–“) moment.
Interestingly, The New Republic’s current edition has the same WTF moment:
Jones cautioned that Obama would have a “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”–or WTF (as in, “What the fuck?”)–moment were he to get such a [troop-escalation] request anytime soon.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, yeah?
