If I hear one more of these pundits say, "The fact of the matter is. . ."

I'm going to scream. Why not just say something like "The truth is . . ." Much simpler and less pompous-sounding.

1. Agree. Especially when its an opinion...

They love to represent opinions as "fact" Makes me want to vomit.

3. I hate the phrase "the American people".

As if Americans aren't necessarily people. It should just be Americans.

And also "Make no mistake." Hated it ever since George W. started using it.
