Carve aroundPosted: January 13, 2022
Al Sharpton uttered this malaphor, talking about the filibuster:
“…If they can carve around the filibuster to confirm Supreme Court judges for President Trump, they can carve around the filibuster to bring voter rights to President Biden.”-https://c-span.org/video/?514285-1/march-voting-rights-rally&live…
This is a mashup of “work around” (to manage something in spite of some problematic person or thing) and “carve out” (to establish a nich or role for oneself). A tip of the hat to Frank King for spotting this one.
