In Which Orrin Hatch Uses a Swear

Orrin Hatch Toasts the Russian Usurper

Oh, dear:

“We’re not going back to health care. We’re in tax now. As far as I’m concerned, they shot their wad on health care and that’s the way it is. I’m sick of it,” Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said Wednesday, a day before he outlined his committee’s agenda for the fall.

Urban Dictionary here. Maybe there’s another definition of shooting a wad of which I’m unaware?

    Probably.
    Going back to the old muzzle loader days, meaning to waste your energies. (by shooting out just the “wad” – an ineffective paper or cloth patch – having neglected to load the actual bullet.)

    Yeah… wad can refer to the cotton packing that goes between the gunpowder and the bullet.

    Don’t need Urban Dictionary for this one – it goes back at least as far as ’50s teenage boys.
