Subject: Re: Sexgate words

If people are collecting these, some of the British tabs have already used

"Naughtygate"; the sexual application of "naughty" is somewhat more common

in UK English than in US English. Like Zippergate, this is meant to echo

Watergate phonetically.

I don't believe (is my memory letting me down?) anyone on this list has

mentioned Monicagate, which I have also seen in the past couple of days.

Some tabs have been using Sexgate for headlines because they can use bigger

letters and still fit it in....
