Berger In The Joint? (or, "Why does every frelling DC scandal have to end in "-gate"?)

So... if it was Condi Rice (the current NSA to Bush) who admitted to "inadvertently" taking highly classified 9/11-related documents and stuffing them in her slacks and pantyhose, how do YOU think the mainstream national media would be covering this story? Hmmmmmmm??? Berger's also an advisor to the Kerry campaign... uhhhhh... he was, that is, until Kerry dumped him faster than you can say "Edwards bump? What Edwards bump?"

And another thing... WHY does every political scandal have to end with "-gate" (as in "Watergate")? Watergate was/is the name of the hotel where the Nixon scandal took place. There is no "gate" anywhere! Nor should that word be attached to every frelling scandal that comes out of DC. It's lazy journalism. Unimaginative, to say the least.

We must come up with original names for each scandal that crops up. Any ideas for properly naming this one? I'm open to suggestions. (heh-heh-heh)
