Halperin ‘Doubles Down’ with Sequel to ‘Game Change’

The title of the new Halperin book about the election contains the most annoying, hackish and over-used political colloquialism of 2012. Total shocker coming from a hackish and over-used nothing like Halperin:

Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, who wrote the best seller Game Change, about the 2008 presidential campaign, will publish a book about the just-concluded election under the title Double Down: Game Change 2012, the New York Times reports.

"Double down" and "game change" in the same title. Smart! And judging by the content of the original Game Change book, I can only imagine the unsourced hacktastical awfulness inside.
