what is with the vice president and his excessive use of the adverb "frankly"? every time the Dark Prince rises to give a republican-loving journo an interview the word gets tossed around in totally unnecessary degree-- today's example comes from a CNBC chat with Larry Kudlow-- “I like to remind people that it’s a Republican president and a Republican Congress that put in place those tax cuts that, frankly, are at risk in this election." i suspect that the VP knows the term means, "in truth; honestly"-- shouldn't the voters expect that all of Dick's opinions would be these things? i noticed Lynne used it as well in her sad Wolf Blitzer scolding. favorite family word? does anyone have any other recent Cheney uses of the term?
