**The following is the 2007 winning entry from an annual contest at TexasA&M University calling for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary term.
This year’s term: Political Correctness.
“Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical
minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media,
which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a
turd by the clean end.”**
