'Surge' is the new 'War on'

Radley Balko (mocking John McCain) scares me:

Think of all the other problems "surges" could solve. I’m seeing the "Anti-Poverty Surge," the "Health Care Surge," and the "Anti-Obesity Surge." And of course, all we really need to finally win the drug war is a "surge"—a three-month blast of troops, guns, and ammo ought to do.

I'm not an Obamaniac, but I really hope John McCain doesn't win.
