Who knew you had to apologize for using the term "Christmas party"? Apparently, NPR's Nina Totenberg. Totenberg was speaking on Sunday's "Inside Washington" about a failed spending bill in Congress when she made these comments:

"We just passed this huge tax cut in part because business said, you know, we have to plan, we have to know what kind of tax cuts we have. Well, these agencies, including the Defense Department, don't know how much money they've got and for what. And I was at - forgive the expression - a Christmas party at the Department of Justice and people actually were really worried about this. These are law enforcement people don't know exactly what kind of money they can spend for what."
