"Return to Normalcy"  was the Republican slogan in the 1920 campaign, which
means it is as legitimate a term as "New Deal" or "Great Society".   I don't
know off-hand who coined the term---if one wanted to be demeaning, one could
say that Harding didn't have the brains to come up with the term.

And why can't ANYONE use "President Bush" and "malaprop" in the same sentence?
