Jezebel's Anna N. makes a strong argument against the word "douchebag"

She's right, it is pretty passe:

"...'douchebag,' once a thrillingly multifaceted insult, has calcified into a type. Douchebags wear Ed Hardy shirts. They pop their collars. They may differ by region, but even these differences are strictly codified. 'Douchebag' used to be both simple and versatile, a way to describe someone whose disregard for other people, combined with outsized self-regard, was so extreme as to be hilarious. Now it's a culture, with its own stereotypes and its own quasi-ethnic jokes."

True that.
