Fox News’ web site has a new name for the government shutdown. According to, it’s really a ‘slimdown.’

    And every federal employee should be just a bit offended – you’re not furloughed; just slimmed down. You weren’t really needed, anyway.

  • Bill says:

    It actually is just a government slimdown, the full government is not closed.
