Reviving the Language

I'm glad to see that "lying, dog-faced, pony soldier" has grabbed some attention but let's not opt for Hollywood-bred lines. 

Instead, let's revive "poltroon" and "scalawag."

And may "hornswoggler" and "vamp" be somewhere in the mix.

I favor Shakespeare insults. Best ever. You "vile neat's tongue". You "bull's pizzle". "The kiss you take is better than you give". (that one might fit Biden). You "boil". You "plague sore". "lily livr'd". Need I go on? :-)

Great examples. It is difficult to beat The Bard.
