Political Slang

As the Russell Library looks toward our move to the new Special Collections Building, I am especially looking forward to opening our new exhibit galleries in the space!

In an attempt to keep you on the edge of your seats for the opening events, I’m collaborating with our newest student worker create a series of blog posts that hint at the exhibit topic. Each post will center on a word or phrase of political jargon connected to Georgia’s political stories – past and present – as well as to the collections of the Richard B. Russell Library. Each word is a piece of our larger exhibit puzzle and should get potential visitors revved up for the new display.

Can't wait to know more about the origins of well known and obscure political slang? You're in luck. We'll put up the first post tomorrow followed by weekly installments from here on out.
