Word For The Day, Thursday, June 21, 2012 - divulse
dictionaries ad nauseam | 21 June 2012 | Thursday's sub

Posted on 06/21/2012 4:49:30 AM PDT by secret garden


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".

divulse \dahy-VUHLS\, verb
To tear away or apart.

Example sentences:
A perforation having been so made, it is safer to divulse the opening rather than to enlarge it by cutting in order to avoid the possibility of opening a blood vessel in an inaccessible region.
-- Eugene Fuller, M.D., The Journal of the American Medical Association

Even if you are the kooper of the winkel over measure never lost a license. Nor a duckindonche divulse from bath and breakfast.
-- James Joyce, Finnegans Wake

Etymology:
Divulse comes from the Latin root vellere meaning "plucked". The prefix di- is a variation of dis- before the letter v meaning "apart" or "away", as in disown.

The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

did you watch any of the NHL awards last night? i liked the red carpet stuff this time. Though i was disturbed to see the Gingeroux was catting around Vegas with BizNasty, a bad bad influence! Some of the shanabanning skits were funny, but some were lame and when they showed Shanny, he didn’t look very amused!

I think the tide turned on O back when my dem driver went after us pubbies on the truckroom floor screaming he couldn’t vote for Obama again and that we needed to front a guy he COULD vote for. I always portray Romney to him as Dem Lite. I think he’s a solid Romney voter. His wife is a different story. She would never publicly say she wasn’t voting Dem. She was the top Dem working at the county’s board of elections for years.

what are the chances that NY will go for Romney? unlikely at best. what i need to see is a whole lot more of the Bubbaloon undermining him, THAT will truly give me hope. Hobbes has been banging the clintoon drum as a hopeful sign and i agree that’s good, but i need to see more of it to be sure it’s not just happenstance.

I caught the second half and we thought the Shanny bits were funny, even though he looked kind of peeved. I was annoyed that the gingers beat my players and it was an absolute joke that Karlson won over Shea Weber. The guy did ZERO special team time all season and he’s your best D man??? I don’t think so.

Billy Jeff has a long memory and I don’t think he cared much for how his “wife” was treated in the last primary. He is a consummate politician and may unveil an October surprise of his own.

and did ANYONE understand what Malkin said??? i think i picked up from Twitter that he dedicated it to Gonchar? can that be right. i thought he said something like he’s my best friend and i hope to meet him some day, totally incomprehensible! but i think he was the most deserving. he kept the Pens alive when the eggshell capt was nursing his scrambled brains back to health.

Obama down 20% among NC blacks. Black ministers ambushing Witholder to get to Obama with complaints about SSM. Unions in WI disillusioned by O and decimated by Walker. Dems ANNOUNCING they will not go to dem convention. Dems up for re-electin shunning Obama. Obama’s fundraising down. The only fans O has left are the Hollywood money class. Keep the faith. It’s happening. You live in a bubble, tell yourself that when you begin to doubt.

Absolutely. It’s a popularity contest. Could you believe when Gabriel Landes-something said his mom was in Hawaii working on her tan? She will never live that down. I would have been there for my kid. Hawaii can wait!

Ti, i live in a swing state bubble. you can have all the dems in your station voting for Romney but NY is not going to go republican, it comes down to electoral votes. i am not saying it can’t/won’t happen, but anecdotal evidence of people being disillusioned inspires hope, but not certainty.

Malkin’s come a long way from having no English at all. Gonchar, as a fellow countryman was likely like his big brother as he adjusted to life in the US and PGH.

speaking of anecdotal evidence, i have some third-hand from Paula about malkin being out in a bar somewhere in Pgh, several years ago now and his english was good enough to say YOU GORGEOUS to one of her nieces.

Conversations like this are happening. Upstate NY is more like the midwest. NYC and their cheating determines who wins this state, but when Obama is openly trashed and it is acceptable, even assumed, that we all hate Obama it cannot just be a local phenomenon. I give most polls an extra percent or two to Romney due to just that. I suspect that in the liberal bastions they still don’t dare say they are disillusioned. The voting booth is private though. Tide is turning, momentum on our side. We still have tons of work to do and there is time to ensure we win. I choose to keep a positive attitude and keep buying Obama biographies. You are at ground zero - the DC bubble. I will pray for you! ;^)

Please recall that xsrisingsenior is working at Fairfax co. Romney HQ and calling people on a daily basis, as is her best friend from school, but he’s in the Arlington ofc. I have all kinds of Northern Virginians for Romney bumper stickers but no one wants to take them bc they are sure their cars will be keyed!

Interesting dynamic at play. Obams has pretty much lost the working man, the blue collar, but he's very popular among minorities and what I call (lovingly) the yuppie scum.

It may make Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin more competitive than Virginia.

Also it may make things interesting in NH, NJ, and Maine, but I wouldn't hold my breath there.

Right now Rom is up 3 in Ohio which may be close to a high water mark as this state is 50/50, although I think we can squeeze another percent out of the rural and outer burbs areas.

NY went to the O man by 27 points last time. If that margin is down to 20 this time, we may be looking at least 300 electoral votes, 270 for sure.

On September 15, 2008 there was an economic terror attack, what Congressman Kanjorski called an electronic run on the bank, that killed the incumbent party.

Now O is the incumbent party.

Look I’m not counting any chickens yet. But outside of a major Rom scandal or Obama starting war with Iran he is looking more mess than Messiah right now.

Also Soros gave the Euro three months so that means O is going to have a major mess on his hands come mid September.

Pa has a voter ID law set to take effect this fall. Of course the usual suspects are trying to get the courts to stop it. The county executive in PGH said that it would take millions of dollars to train poll workers.

Very pretty Gothic architecture. I picture something smaller when I hear chapel.

Why I jog the park and the trails in the woods instead of being a gym rat.

There was an article yesterday, and several others about Obama making race a factor in the campaign.

Clinton will let that set, then repudiate it, because they did OT t him in aught eight.

It is getting interesting politically, isn’t it?

How many in Obama’s charmed circle
Will the latest scandal take down?
Will revelations from those divulsed
Deprive Louis Obama of his crown?

If he weren’t so effete and snobbish
And didn’t openly show disdain
For the very people who can’t wait
To toss him into the political rain

No matter which disgruntled henchman
Eventually turns and drops the dime
Obama won’t play daily golf games-
Seeking work will take too much time...
