Are Sarah Palin and opponents of Pierce Transit Proposition 1 in cahoots? Well, probably not. But both are using “WTF” to make their points.
According to the Associated Press, Palin noted on her Facebook page that President Obama’s State of the Union address was dubbed “Winning the Future” and suggested that the acronym for that title, WTF, aptly sums up the speech.
Like LOL is an Internet acronym for “laugh out loud,” WTF has been used to ask “What the ….?”
Opponents of the transit ballot measure, which would raise the transit sales tax .3 of a cent, use the WTF acronym on their website and signs that started popping up around the county this week. After Palin’s remark gets wide play, more voters will probably pick up on the double meaning behind the anti-transit signs.
