Let Us Rephrase

Let's have no more talk of "bailing"
companies that are failing.

Why?  "Bailing" is unpopular.  We need to change the word.  McCain says so.

When cleaning up their mess, you
instead should call it "rescue."

UPDATE:

Yes, see the new headline: France seeks 300bn rescue fund for Europe

Yeah, rescue, that makes it all sound more palatable.

Even when you're nearly broke,
remember - word choice is no joke.
