is such a: Ambiguous, inappropriate, inept, lame, overused, and weak phrase. All right to use in sentences such as Anyone who objects to the use of the phrase 'is such a' is such a jerk. OR Anyone who objects to the use of the phrase 'is such a' must be an English teacher--either that or she's some kind of editor. Anyhow, only a really anal-retentive type person should have any objections. Otherwise, should be replaced by something more interesting or by something more enlightening, entertaining, or exciting. Possibly by something clever or coy or cute. For that matter, a pedantic, phlegmatic, or prosaic example would usually be an improvement over one's using is such a.
Example: That one lady editor at pseudodictionary.com is, like, a total curmudgeon--or whatever you call a lady curmudgeon. A biatch? Beech? Bich? Chib? She must be really old--maybe even 30!

She even expects us to use an occasional adjective or adverb in our examples. Thinks it'll make her job easier, faster, and more fun.
