Is Ben Bernanke in the tank for Obama? Stocks, Oct. 21, 2008That last reference is to NewsHour anchor Gwen Ifill, who moderated the vicepresidential debate; rightwing commentator Malkin, fulminating over Ifill forthcoming book about race presidential politics, fired this zinger: She so far in the tank for the Democratic presidential candidate, her oxygen delivery line is running out.

So . Hes not in the ring with them; hes in the tank.

That apposition suggests that the term comes, like much of our slang knockout, in my corner, on the ropes, from the world of boxing. Safire consulted a sportsslang maven, Paul Dickson, who followed that thread back to a 1930 story in the Los Angeles Times, a boxer who admitted to taking a divean expression that, like in the tank and to tank, suggests deep water. Here Safire:

A tank was the 19thcentury term for what we now call a swimming pool; the metaphor evoked a picture of diving to the rings canvascovered floor as if into a pool to feign loss of consciousness. By extension, Dickson reports, when a fighter or anything else including a stock takes a nose dive he or she has tanked.

Eric Zorn, blogging for the Chicago Tribune, rounded up a bunch of links to analysis of in the tank and concluded that the boxing connection was legit. But the boxing term is in the tank, not the tank for. Could there possibly be another etymology?

Here a little background. The word tank came into English in the early 17th century from Portuguese tanque, reservoir, which is either a borrowing from Gujarati tankh, cistern, or the source of the Indian word. The Portuguese, you will recall, spent about four centuries on the Indian subcontinent as colonizers. Tank became the term for fuel container around 1902; tanker, for ship carrying oil, emerged around the same time. The military adopted tank in 1915 as a code name for armored vehicles that resembled benzene tanks, and the code name slipped into general usage. A tank suit 1920s got its name because it was worn in a swimming tank, or pool; today tanktype apparel be sleeveless, scoopnecked garment.

All those meanings provide plenty of potential clues to the meaning of in the tank. If in the tank is shorthand for bad political PR, perhaps in the tank for means, by to go to embarrassing lengths, even at the risk of compromising one dignity, to further a cause. And while in the tank for suggests overt advocacy, in the tank with to indicate only correlation. Those sharks in the tank with the economy are swimming around together, but they haven made an endorsement.

At least that how I see it. Any other ideas? Tanks in advance.

Many hits for in the tank with turn out to be links to Sea World or to plumbing howto sites. However, I do enjoy the expert presentations on this blog and the opportunity to send in my thoughts.

Some other uses of tank:from PBS, a member of a Washinghton think tank; a holding cell, drunk tank; tanked up drunken. Using sharks in the tank resembles t women stores he warning , There is a shark in your pool. Be careful , you are playing with someone that dangerous. In the tank with, seems to denote plays together with ,equally,as a member of ,or sympathizes with that swimming pools group. She in the tank pool with the herbalists. And tank or tanked used as a verb to dive down.

All that seems fairly innocent but in the tank FOR or in Joe tank seems to idicate some kind of control by the owner of the tank. From the movie, The Godfather: the judge is in our pocket he owes us a favor and must do what we tell him to do. Tank being used as a personal container the same as pocket may hint at some underhanded dealings or illegal connections without actually saying it, which might be why it beening used so much in this election. For example , we might read : He is popular with the press. He sells news women stores papers and attracts viewers. Compared to : The press is in his tank or they are in the tank for him. It alludes to nefarious behavior. women stores
