Okay, all you neophyte neologists—I’ll give extra credit if you can use two or more old words to make a new one. My example: liberag. A newspaper that is so far to the left that it is nothing more than a rag. See: NY Times, Washington Post, et al.

Put on your thinking caps.

The current occupant of the White House does seem a little fast and loose with the truth. Not that the mainstream media would ever call him on it.

Whatever you do, do not look at the latest state polls out of Quinipiac. They are absolutely horrid.

Libs always engage in neology-
It’s intrinsic to their ideology.
Label one group or other,
Pitting man vs. brother
All to foster a sense of “me-ology.”

Well, like the supposed neocon’s the democrats are always blaming for the world’s woe, I guess the democrats’ neoilogism energy “strategy” is also lacking oil. And logic.

i am not an eeyore and i am not dispirited by polls, this is even up, regardless of what the polls show and will come down to turnout. i emailed my good friend in FL and sent her whatever demoralizing BS article that was in the NY times and said, you better be prepared to haul every person you know who is a Romney voter to the polls on election day.

anecdotal uplift for Eyeores:
my paralegal was just in here. she’s the one from PGH, with dem family galore in PA. she had said her brother in PA while not voting for Obama could not vote for Romney. Well she just spoke to him, he’s now voting FOR romney. she’s going to call her aunt tomorrow to make sure she’s still on board. she is doing her best to steer her relatives to the romney reservation.

I doubt it’s leather, lace wouldn’t look right on leather. I am betting Mitt liked that outfit. I think she looks pretty hot, compared to say...oh, the hildebeast? Her long hair is always styled, unlike hill’s. Face it, the libs hate her because she is hot like most Rep women and unlike most lib women.

Good because what I’m observing from the O camp, and other Dems, is that brutal negative ads seem effective. It’s all the Dems are doing.

I think she looks svelte.

Do non-Jews have as much trouble pronouncing "svelte" with one syllable as they do "kvetch." Or is it all "sa-velte" like "ka-vetch?"

I can say svelte just fine, but I am not as smooth with kvetch. Now that you mention it, I can say the two of them over and over and it’s getting easier.

My niece is adopted and originally from South Korea. When she went away to college other Asian students would walk up to her, but when they heard her American voice would back off. They labeled her the FakAsian. That was her nickname. The FakAsian. It was said with fondness, not in a mean way.

I am amazed that we don’t have more but there are some: TOTUS, theOne, 0, theWon, Jug Ears....

Are clueless young people attending institutes of higher learning “studiots”?

Obama’s minions are practicing
Neologism on a scale grand-
Making a new meaning for every
Turn of a phrase or a hand

“Golf” means you are a racist
Just because of golf pro Woods
And “profit” means you’re greedy
For selling a service or goods

“Terrorist” means hating Arabs
And all which that implies-
But if you’re smart, that nonsense
Should promptly open your eyes...

If you have not read Ira Levin’s “This Perfect Day”, you might give it a look-similar premise of humanity ruled by evil-in this case, a computer (and its programmers), two members of a defiant underground group fall in love, etc happy ending, but scary s***.

I like that take on her tats, but “tramp stamp” still comes to mind...

This talk of Nazi-like and Communist social engineering gave me an obscure funk earworm from the early 80’s-

“Zwei, drei, vier
One, two, three
Its easy to see
But its not that I don’t care so
‘Cause I hear it all the time
But they never let you know
On the TV and the radio
She was young her heart was pure
But every night is bright she got
She said sugar is sweet
She come rappin’ to the beat
Then I knew that she was hot

She was singin’
Don’t turn around, uh-oh
Der Kommissar’s in town, uh-oh
You’re in his eye
And you’ll know why
The more you live
The faster you will die

Alles klar, Herr Kommissar?”

I wonder how many still do the “bump” on the dance floor?

Someone told me that the original song was made by a German group, in that language.
