Ironic that the journalists who make up the pundit class are responsible for propagating some of the year’s most pestiferous cliches:

- “Kicking the can down the road” …
- “Game changer” (which seamlessly doubles as a sports bromide)
On a positive note, usage of “a perfect storm” seems to have abated.
More annoying people of 2011 here — only two to go, including THE most annoying person(s?) of the year that almost was.
