Banned Words of 2009™ (Cut! Snip! Slash! Edition)

Because it's never too early to put the world on notice, we started compiling the Banned Words of 2009™ list early this year. That said, we've got to face facts. The list in its current incantation is just too long. It's unreasonable to ban almost forty words, so we've got to cut, snip, and slash with an eye toward December 31st.

To that end, choose from the list the three words/phrases you feel must absolutely be banned (and those who utter them shot into the sun) in 2009. I'll tote them up and we'll get this baby down to a nice neat ten.
  1. Superdelegate
  2. Bitter
  3. Presumptuous
  4. Denounce/Disavow/Renounce/Reject/Repudiate
  5. Surge
  6. PUMA
  7. Lunchpail voter
  8. Subprime
  9. Miley Cyrus
  10. Clinton (either of em), Lanny Davis, Harold Ickes, Howard Wolfson
  11. Vet/Vetted/Vetting
  12. POW
  13. Staycation
  14. Hockey Mom
  15. Main Street, not Wall Street
  16. Bipartisan
  17. Maverick
  18. Bailout
  19. Fannie/Freddie
  20. Game-changer/changing
  21. Optics/Metrics
  22. "My friends.."
  23. Joe Sixpack, Joe Lieberman, Joe The Plumber
  24. Race Card
  25. Robocall
  26. Cougar
  27. Poll ("Tracking" or otherwise)
  28. Socialist
  29. ACORN/Ayers
  30. Nicole Wallace/Rick Davis/Steve Schmidt
  31. Center-Right Nation
  32. Gotcha Journalism
  33. Bradley Effect
  34. You Betcha!
  35. Pit Bull/lipstick/lipstick on a pig (or pit bull)
  36. Islamofacist
  37. Ground Game
  38. Straight Talk
  39. Govern from the center
