We Need More Labels

What the heck is this no more labels business? We don't need fewer labels, we need more.

For instance, why isn't there a word for a Speaker who navigates the tunnels like everyone else most days, but..

...parades her gavel through the crowd tauntingly when she thinks she can get just one person out of a crowd of thousands to be rude back to her?

And then hears a racial epithet that wasn't there. "Well I think it's ok to pretend they said it because you know that it's just the thing they would have done if I had been a tiny bit better at taunting."

Oh wait. There is a label for that. I think it's: "ex-Speaker"
