It seems that word ‘tactical’ has become a bit over used, to the point that the virtual pitchforks and torches come out in a demonstration of outrage every time it pops up. Shoot, if you want to make Mudge really angry, just utter the word. In fact, he won’t even be able to read this story without that vein in his shiny forehead popping out. You may not survive if you ask him to read the word aloud.
According to Merriam-Webster, the adjective ‘tactical’ refers to:
