In a rare break from party infighting, Monday’s Republican primary debate saw the candidates unite in their derision of “ObamaContent,” the president’s newly unveiled theory of linguistic meaning. The theory, which relies upon the practice of a speaker’s linguistic community to fix the semantic content of many words, was attacked as “socialized meaning” by the debate participants.
“If you want content, you fix it yourself,” said Romney, kicking off a long series of comments on individual responsibility. ”I didn’t always use to be this erudite,” added Gingrich. ”You can either put in the work to learn new words, or you can leech off the knowledge of others.”
