In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of Word for the Day.
pellucidity, pellucidness noun
[Latin pellcidus, from pellcre, to shine through : per-, through; see per- + lcre, to shine; see leuk- in Indo-European roots.]
Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.

Only 172 days till we vote the amateur out of office. Get up, get busy! All hands on deck.
Not to be confused with Pelosid, which doesn’t make any sense at all!
Since it is Commando Friday, I have chosen to wear pellucid garments.
Obama promised us the most pellucid administration in U.S. history. I think he meant “polluted.” As in corrupt.
Why you loose piece of change!
LOL We are polluted with libs who don’t care if O was born in Kenya or not. Scary. A++
Welp, I don’t think it proves anything about where he was born, but it does indicate a certain willingness to push whatever narrative about himself that would give him the most advantage during any point in his life. As someone pointed out on twitter, when that bio was published in 1991, there was no interwebs for some lowly assistant to go trolling for bios. That publisher got that info from the source, or, at the very least, he (Obama) had to have approved it before it was published. A writer born in Kenya sounds much more exotic.
I think Obama has been patterning his life after Zelig.
No matter how pellucid or erudite the conservative position may be, the liberal mindset refuses to entertain even the thought of understanding it.
Well, look at you strutting your stuff. I see the guys followed you into class. A++
Cause they don’t think, they feeeeeeeeeel.
“Let me be pellucid” said the man
whose natal narrative isn’t so clear.
Elizabeth Warren’s pellucid
Take your c.v. and then goose it
Use the Cherokee Nation
To gain Harvard station
Affirmative Action? Abuse it
A+++ those two deserve each other.
A++ O’s not worthy to tie RR’s shoelaces, wherever he was born.
A++ O’s got some ‘splainin’ to do, as Ricky Ricardo would say.
Truth is truth, unless you are a lib...then it’s whatever you want it to be. A++
I am striving to make my writing more pellucid.
Accordingly, I have started a story about an enormous cavern, where ancient life forms still wander about.
