Who picked the word ‘sequester’ anyway?

A final thought, which goes like this. We’ve just gotta find a new word for “sequester.” Because really, it’s just not fun to say — or hear. At least “fiscal cliff” had a certain ring to it, even though we didn’t really love that either.

Speaker of the House John Boehner is trying to get some traction for “Obamaquester.” Funny, if not entirely accurate.
