Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4547
mondegreen, salami tactics, manifesto, whipsaw

Due to a mondegreen, the lyrics to an anonymously written patriotic song were misconstrued by the prime minister to be the motto of a new rebel group, so instead of continuing the salami tactics touted by the armed forces, a new manifesto was issued by the government which quickly whipsawed the public into those who supported the military’s peace process and those who saw no other alternative but to join the newly energized rebel forces.
