Drop the word mastermind - it is going to their head

CNN is reporting on the killing of the bombing "mastermind" guilty of the recent bombings in Egypt. I am getting very tired of the continued use of this word "mastermind". This word is too lofty for such a primitive mindset. I think a better word might be bomb "monkey". We could train a monkey to do this work of constructing bombs. Why elevate these people to a position of assumed intelligence? A global use of a word of derision is more likely to discourage this type of behavior than a word of admiration.

    I have some words that come to mind for them, but I can't share them here. This is a family blog. ;)

    This is the kind of priceless insight that keeps me coming back!

    If I would hear the term "bomb monkey" in the news some time it would make my year. Ah well, we can dream.

    Maybe somehow it will spread around the blogosphere.
