Internet Is Abuzz With Political Phrases

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – With election season heating up, it’s the words themselves that are determining what the candidates really have to say.

The Global Language Monitor is an association that tracks the usage and popularity of various words, and even though the elections are next year, they’ve already compiled a list of political phrases that have voters buzzing.

The top ten political buzzwords include “Surge,” “Obama,” and “Live Earth,” which speaks to a strong sounding new direction for the country.

And there’s one phrase that has the Internet interested in something slightly less political.

One top political buzzword is – eyes up – “Cleavage.”

But, while constituents may be looking down candidate Hillary Clinton’s shirt for the latest scoop, other phrases speak to a slightly more serious side.

Other top phrases that have the Internet buzzing include “Subpoena,” “All-time low,” and “I don’t recall,” a favorite among suspicious speakers and prickly politicians.

Check out for the full buzz.
