For Brits, it's Snouts on the Outs. For US, we're stuck with...

According to the London Daily Telegraph:
A Commons official resigned as the Speaker's spin doctor after he was caught trying to generate anti-Labour publicity, it emerged yesterday.

Wow -- must have been something pretty inflammatory...
John Stonborough had to hand in his notice after an e-mail he wrote to a Tory friend was sent by accident to a researcher working for a Labour MP.

In the e-mail, Mr Stonborough urged the Tories to attack the Labour 'snouts in the trough' disclosed in the list showing the expenses claimed by MPs.

"Snouts in the trough," eh? Kind of pales next to Cheney's F-bomb, where the Washington Post had to defend running the word in question.
