The Twitch List

I've developed, over the last few years, an actual physical twitch to words and phrases that are overused and/or hypocritical. They include corporate-speak and blog-talk. without further build-up here's a sample:

black swan
overton window
"family values" (those who espouse this loudly usually don't have any)
"truth to power"
calendar as a verb
agenda as a verb
solution as a verb
noun as a verb
"lifestyle choice" (Christianity: lifestyle choice. Gay: no, that's biological)

and so on.

What's on your twitch list?
