英语咬文嚼字 The Crazy Logophile

美国驻欧盟大使戈登·桑德兰(Ambassador Sondland)的律师表示,美国国务院已禁止桑德兰周二(10月8日)出现在一个众议院委员会面前,该委员会正在对美国总统唐纳德·特朗普进行弹劾调查。 今天特朗普总统发推特标明拒绝让美国驻欧盟大使戈登·桑德兰作证,并攻击了众议院的对他弹劾的调查。

特朗普在twitter 里说:“我很乐意派出桑德兰大使,一个真正的好人,一个伟大的美国人来作证;但不幸的是,他将在一个完全背离原则的非正规的法庭(袋鼠法庭)上作证。在这个法庭里,共和党的权利已被剥夺。” 这里,特朗普使用了 kangaroo court "袋鼠法庭" 这一法律术语,

原文如下:

I would love to send Ambassador Sondland, a really good man and great American, to testify, but unfortunately he would be testifying before a totally compromised kangaroo court, where Republican’s rights have been taken away.”

kangaroo court
意思是 an unofficial court set up by a group of people, especially in a prison, trade union, or other organization, to deal with a disagreement or with a member of the group who is considered to have broken the rules (Cambridge) (指在监狱、工会或其他组织中私设的公堂或非正规的法庭)


今天 vanityfair.com 美国名利场杂志官方网站刊登文章阐述为何美国现任司法部长威廉·巴尔(William Barr)总是在支持帮助在道德上不受束缚的总统。文章中使用了 carry water for 来描述本应坚持法律与规矩的司法部长却袒护道德有问题的总统。

原句如下:

Washington keeps asking why the law-and-order attorney general is carrying water for a morally untethered president. The answer may lie in the youthful lessons Barr learned from his father, a combative, provocative New Yorker—not unlike Donald Trump.

carry water for (someone)
往往是指迫于种种压力去支持某个人,某个团体或某个事业,虽然本人实际内心并不赞同。
To support a person, organization, or cause that one would not in reality endorse, as due to pressure, force, or pragmatic reasons.

英语政治和媒体词典 Dictionary of Politics & Media

play in Peoria
verb phrase
Peoria pronunciation: peewaalia

Meaning
To appeal or be acceptable to mainstream or average consumers or constituents

play in Peoria 这个习语的意思是某种东西对主流或普通消费者或选民的吸引力。在政治上,它是普通人对某个政策或建议反应的一种衡量。

Peoria (皮奥里亚)是美国中部伊利诺伊州的一个实际城市。这个词组起源于19世纪末,当时杂耍表演者说,如果一场演出能够在Peoria取得成功,那它就可以在任何地方都取得成功,因为Peoria被视为一个不起眼的城市。

理查德·尼克松(Richard Nixon)在政治界推广了该词组。他想问问how something would play in Peoria, 问普通选民对他任何计划会如何回应。

Note: The name "Peoria" derives from their autonym or name for themselves in the Illinois language, peewaareewa (modern pronunciation peewaalia). Originally it meant, "Comes carrying a pack on his back."

Citations
Trump’s China Tariffs Not Playing in Peoria. Meanwhile, consumer prices will jump for those goods and others derived from them. They may rise faster than wages, which are not rising at all once you consider inflation.

-----------------------------
Donald Trump will probably lose the election. But he is a final warning. Unless political elites of both the left and the right become more humble, unless they once again ask themselves how their agendas will play in Peoria, the next rough beast might slouch over the corpse of the republic.

"Will it play in Peoria?" goes back to the days of vaudeville. The city of 115,000 in central Illinois was once considered the ultimate focus group, the embodiment of Middle America, the place to test a joke or a soda or a social policy to learn what white folks without a fancy degree thought of it. Back in the day, you knew better than to defy the settled judgment of this ultimate test market. You went as far as Peoria would let you, and no further.
