Is the left just terrible at inventing catch phrases for complex concepts, or is the right all about discrediting and destroying anything that challenges their status quo?

Did lefties coin the term "politically correct"? I've only ever heard it said by socially conservative people in the whole Daily Mail-ish "PC gone mad!" kind of way. I thought the phrase had come about due to their objection to being called out for being bigoted.

So yeah, not just indistinguishable from the straw-man version of it... the concept gets completely swamped by the straw-man version.
