I never liked it when George W. Bush used the term "evildoers" to describe al-Qaida and other terrorists. A lot of other people objected as well, but for different reasons. I didn't like the term because it always sounded to me like he was saying "evil Dewar's," as in the blended Scotch. (This always made some of Bush's statements chuckle-worthy - "We will not rest until we find the evil Dewar's!") I prefer single malts, but "evil" always seemed unduly harsh.
