Most overused cliche

The most overused cliche in news is "perfect storm"...For the last few years it comes up ALL the damn time...take note when you are listening to the news or read the paper or online. Analysts love to use it. Can we add this to "talk to the hand" and let it die?

Perfect Storm example from CNN today
(although I'd love this to come to be)

Myself having just had an essay published under the title "The Perfect Storm" I can only hang my head in shame and say "oops, my bad." Next time I'll try to think outside the box and if I come up with a phrase that isn't crazy delicious, I promise to tell myself "hey, the 1990s called and they want their cliche back." KTHXBAI ;-D

I didn't mean anytime you would use "perfect storm"..in that case, it would totally work, rab!

No, honestly, I had used that title as a placeholder while thinking "this is such a cliche, I'll think of a better title for it before the deadline" and then I never did.

However, don't let that put anyone off buying the book, described by Amazon as "344 pages" long, written in "English," and with a shipping weight of "1.2 pounds" -- it's hard to argue with quotes like that!

What a joke! I just heard on the news that 10's of thousands have been thrown off the voting rolls.
I live in Michigan and we are one of the states effected. If the fascist Republican Government screws this election up by cheating again, we could probably expect violence out of our citizens, possibly at the polls?
Sadly, they will be accused of terrorism for demanding their right to vote. Forget this garbage about the perfect storm and think about the perfect Police State.
If this is found to be true, the Republican Party will have something to answer for,, watch the news today Boys and Girls, and remember who brought us the Police State we live in! GW and his criminal Republican Party,,PS... did I mention they are saying it is an illegal purging of citizens Vote Democrat if you can!!!!!!!!!
Could this be why George brought our military into our country for the first time?
