Sorry to brazen my way in here to give the VERB use definition also...

Verb phrase 5. brazen out / through, to face boldly or shamelessly: He prefers to brazen it out rather than admit defeat.

These uppity new age supposedly Catholic nuns brazenly tell the Vatican that the papal rep charged with overseeing them isn't really welcome at their conference. The idea of some WOMENS RIGHTS type nuns challenging the church makes my head want to explode.

Now is the time for us to show what kind of up-brazen we’ve had.

Obama’s brazen attempts to change the direction and values of this country are Communist/Marxist in inception and will be turned back in Novemeber.

The President—cool, smug, and brazen
His followers think he’s amazin’
If the world weren’t so nuts
He’d work at Dunkin’ Donuts
“Hey, Soetoro, these creme-filleds need glazin’”

this is so true. and it's enough to gag you. en route to a caps game this past spring, xshub and i drove through most of DC to get to the Verizon Center. he and i met working at a law firm right out of school and were among the throngs of young people from all over the country who came to DC for jobs etc. And here we were driving past a new crop of them 30 years later. it was gross.

I remember being at a party of these types back in the day. A guy was telling me how he had gone to the KENNEDY SCHOOL. I had no idea what it was, didn’t act remotely impressed bc it didn’t register with me at all. i told xshub about it afterwards and he roared, said it was the Kennedy School of Gov’t at Harvard. Oh well, meant not a thing to me. Still doesn’t!

this is of absolutely NO moment. i stopped at Starbucks this AM as i always do en route to work, had no idea it was Starbucks appreciatioan day, there was not a thing in there to indicate it, and not a soul in there, worker or customer, was there because of or in support of gay marriage. They were the regs who are there every day at the same time i am. Even had i known it was starbucks appreciation day i would have stopped anyway, bc DD is a mile out of my way in the other direction. i always thought starbucks coffee tasted like crap until i acquired a taste for it and now DD while it tastes good to me, doesn't taste STRONG enough.

Brazen

This makes me think of the story of the donkey named Donkey Hotey. Noisy beast he was until his brazen caused him to end up in the stew pot after a thorough braisin’.

You might say the burro became the burrito.

I like how they have to number the players “1” and “2.” Like it’s impossible for the judges to keep them organized otherwise.

Yeah those shoes aren’t my idea of cute either - I liked Steelman’s boots though! Boots are surprisingly comfortable! Wow, what a bitch the writer of that article was! Admitting she wasn’t a fan of Palin’s politics then thrashing everything. lol Did she really expect Palin to be dressed in an expensive suit in the summer heat then serve bbq in it as well? Liberals really are stupid

I know, I would be a zombie even getting up at 4:45 - no way I could dress without at least a cup of coffee first.

So I just saw the clip of bammy claiming Romney is going to raise taxes on the middle class by $2000 a year to give the ultra rich (over 3 mil) a tax break. Why the heck haven't the Conservatives laughed in their faces instead of giving the tepid response?

i realized recently that i used to know Sarah Steelman’s sister. one of xsbaby’s best friends from elementary school was Travis, and his aunt is Sarah Steelman. Travis went to both Oakwood and then to Commonwealth Academy for a year or two with xsbaby. He was the one who brought in the Bush yard sign to taunt their dem teacher with back in 4th grade or so! xsbaby has always had at least one conservative friend to bond with in her class, luckily.

The hysterical ‘rat rhetoric
Just keeps getting more brazen
But they don’t seem aware at all
Of the questions they are raisin’

Lunatic Nancy is out chattering
With blank eyes and a botox face-
She looks like she’s doing LSD
And looking for a rabbit to chase

Vegas Harry talks about tax returns
With only a mythical source at hand
Stop the world-I want to get off-
This is too much craziness to stand...

I wear hiking/construction boots pretty much every day-when I work, and when I hike-very comfortable, even the steel-toed ones I wear.

That said, I had a pair of those awful ankle breaker shoes just like Sarah’s in the 70’s-I wore them (with a mini-dress) on a date to the Folklife Festival, where I tripped over someone’s foot in the crowd at a beer booth and fell. My fiance grabbed my arm, and went and rolling down a grassy embankment with me. We stopped at the bottom unhurt, me with my dress over my head. Never, ever wore platform shoes or heels to an outdoor event again...

I got that phrase years ago from the title of a play-I’ve been using it ever since in response to complete insanity.
