McConnell: Any gun proposals to take back seat

Source: AP

WASHINGTON (AP)— Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell federal spending and the country’s debt will dominate the congressional agenda for the next three months, and that debate about potential gun legislation in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting will take a back seat.

The Kentucky lawmaker tells ABC’s “This Week” that lawmakers will wait to see what an Obama administration review led by Vice President Joe Biden might propose. McConnell says Congress will need to study any recommendations and then see what’s appropriate to do.

But he says that over the coming months, nothing much beyond the country’s finances will occupy the attention of Congress.

I get it now, I get it now. You are attempting to break the Guiness Book of World Records record for most stupid posts in a second, minute, hour, day, week, month, year, and decade. I think you are a shoo-in. Good luck.

mr low integrity director of spelling, punctuation, and grammar, you may want to substitute "shoo-in" for shoe in, "an off topic" for "a off topic" and "more knowledgable poster than I am" for "mor-on", whatever that means.

"a shoe in" means you have one foot in the door...he's a shoe in for the job...meaning he has a good chance of the getting the job.

"shoo in" is a racetrack term applied to a horse that is expected to win a race, because the race is fixed

Good one slewsie, shoo-in is the preferred spelling. Provide a link from a reputable American source that shows otherwise.

There is no such word as shoe-in. Shoe-in is a misspelling of shoo-in. You completely made up a definition for a non-existent word.

Shoo-in

The noun meaning a sure winner is shoo-in, not shoe-in. The term uses the verb shoo, which means to urge something in a desired direction, usually by waving one’s arms. The idea behind the word is that the person being shooed—for example, into the winner’s circle, into a job, or into a field of award nominees—is such a lock that we can shoo him or her in without hesitation.

The term originated in the early 20th century. The earliest instances relate to horse racing, with the shoo-ins being horses that are destined to win through either dominance or race fixing. The earliest instance listed in the OED is from 1928, and we are unable to find any examples from earlier. The word seems to have blown up in the 1930s, however, and historical Google News and Books searches uncover numerous examples from that decade and the 40s. By the 1960s, it was being used outside horse racing.

Examples

Shoe-in is a common misspelling. For example, these writers use the term in its conventional sense, but it is spelled wrong:


Following five interviews, I assumed that I was a shoe-in for the position.[Huffington Post]

Lively Celtic tunes a shoe-in at opera house [Auburn Citizen]

And these writers spell shoo-in correctly:


They strode like a colossus over the catwalks this spring, and were a shoo-in to become the biggest fashion trend of 2011.[Irish Times]

He says some of his supporters thought he was a shoo-in, so they didn’t bother voting.[Toronto Star]

He’s the most consistent of all the celebrities, ridiculously likable and practically a shoo-in for the finals at this point.[Houston Chronicle]
