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.
Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.

Smooth and oily? Obama himself is a demulcent. But soothe me, he does not. (yoda-speak: off)
BTW, the camel denies eating your homework.
Hey, no fair! Soothing is my bailiwick.
ha! that sounds like a grating whine to me, not demulcent at all.
In the definition, there is a great word. (continuing the Yoda speak meme)
store this one for a later “word of the day”
DemulcentDave? more alliteration!
But it doesn’t have the panache that “soothing” does.
The other Jets decided to engage the Penguins in a shootout last night. That rarely ends well. One might say they got thrashed.
I’m sick and tired of Republican contenders who are trying to effect a demulcent view of how well things will be if ‘he’ is elected. It’s not going to be that fantastic, because like cod liver oil, the medicine to repair the damage this Jackal has reaped upon this nation will be harsh, and filled with protest. And that’s if t’he’ really is trying to repair the damage. Dammit, stop playing games and speak the plain frikkin’ truth!!!
A+++ hope that rant served as a demulcent. what goads me even worse is the DC insiders who keep telling me Mitt is the man. gag me.
Oh mama, I know this one. Da mule cent is yesterday's dollar.....Mule, Dems, Inflation, Cent, Dollar...Right. But it's better than:
“A soothing, usually mucilaginous or oily substance, such as glycerin or lanolin, used especially to relieve pain in inflamed or irritated mucous membrane”.
This just conjures up visions of a brass device on the floor at the end of the bar and one of the Coffin brothers leaning over it. Whew...eeeeeee! Now that's demulcent!
Demulcent is the pleasing olfactory sensations released into the shopping center.
The Jets are nasty, glad you beat them. we play them again on Friday at home.
Haven’t paid much attention to them. I sometimes still forget momentarily what they’re doing in the East conference standings.
I keep hoping this entire campaign season has been crafted by behind the scenes minds who threw romney out there to work up our anxiety and throw the liberals off their game fighting the weaknesses of romney. Then, at our convention, someone wonderful will be put up before us and having not spent a dime on campaigning, and not having been in the dirt fighting against other republicans, will emerge ready to kick azz and take names! (hey I can dream can’t I?)
You might want to check for a gas leak. ;-)
Well i am no longer hot for a brokered convention, since i am afraid that AUGUST is far too late to get sufficient $ and organization infrastructure in place etc and get moving on a campaign against the Antichrist who has more $ than God to spend on campaigning. I know no one wants to hear it, but it is going to be Romney, let’s just *ing get going and make sure he wins because the alternative is Venezuela.
