8/28/06: Talking Right
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – In the war of words, conservatives in the US are not only getting their message across - they are redefining how we talk about politics altogether. Linguist Geoffrey Nunberg joins Doug to discuss his new book Talking Right. In it, Nunberg lays out the vocabulary of the left and the right and explains "how conservatives turned liberalism into a tax-raising, latte-drinking, sushi-eating, Volvo-driving, New York Times-reading, body-piercing, Hollywood-loving, left-wing freak show."
