“Truth to Power” Open Thread

Just a reminder to the left: You are no longer authorized to use the term ‘truth to power’ to refer to anything you say or do. You got your choice of President, your choice of House Speaker, and your party controls the Senate. You are the power now. It is especially forbidden to defend the President of the United States or his preferred policies with the phrase.

Only we may say “truth to power,” especially in criticism of the President. Generally we will only say so ironically, though, because to do otherwise would be silly. No serious person genuinely uses that phrase, after all.

Update: Democrats using ‘truth to power’ is even more inappropiate after Specter gives Democrats yet another caucus member in the Senate.
