Today in fun word choice, from Politico: “Few political observers or elected officials doubt that an energized GOP has a headwind at its back.”

Perhaps not using “tailwind” was intentional: The GOP boldly striding into the future butt first? Facing a fierce headwind, the GOP simply turned around and pretended the wind was at its back? The interpretational possibilities are endless.
