According to TPM (and NYT earlier), Anthony Weiner has "raised a few
eyebrows" by claiming to have coined the term "Obamacare". Of course,
this immediately brings to mind Al Gore and the internet, even though
Gore never actually made the claim usually ascribed to him. Weiner is
also claiming context-sensitive use of "coined":
> "The New York Times has - and has always had -- the full context and
> meaning he was trying to convey. Up till then, the right had used the
> term as a pejorative. He realized that running from the term was a
> mistake and eventually so did the White House and the Obama campaign,"
> Morgan said.
