Friday Buzzword: ‘PowerPoint Ranger’

PowerPoint Ranger: Someone with no real-world experience who relies heavily on PowerPoint presentations to express even the simplest ideas. Term likely originated in the Department of Defense.
Nominated by Larry Shenosky

I like this one. Have you ever seen a PowerPoint Ranger in action?

Former Attorney General Edwin Meese once said, “An ‘expert’ is somebody who is more than 50 miles from home, has no responsibility for implementing the advice he gives, and shows slides.”

I think you could substitute “PowerPoint” for “slides.” My all-time favorite PowerPoint is the classic Gettysburg Cemetery Dedication.
