Don't ask, don't tell, don't do anything.

On "Don't ask, don't tell," politicians are emphasizing the supposed need to review, study, reexamine, and look at the issue, which has already been reviewed, studied, reexamined, and looked at to death. Those terms have long been politician-speak for "I don't want to do anything; I just want it to look as though I were." Perhaps when they ask for our time or money for their campaigns, we should tell them that we are reviewing, studying, reexamining, and looking at the issue.
