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.
Gk, fr. rhathymos lighthearted, easy-tempered, carefree (fr. rha easy, ready + thymos spirit, mind, courage) + -ia -y more at fume
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.
The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

So, two years after the biggest Republican gains in the House since before World War II, Americans remain every bit as unimpressed with the way Obama is handling his job as president as they were then.
In 38 more days we throw the bum out! Look lively, talk to a Democrat and convert him.
Sorry, I used a new source and now they want you to sign up to access it. That is just plain wrong.
Rhathymia — easy spirit.
Hmm. Okay. I try to be cheerful, but it’s not as if I had an “Easy” button someone could operate to make me happy.
Never mind. I’m easy.
Anyway, I’ve tried to get into the humor and good nature of
“Ratatouille”, but the rhathymia still escapes me. It’s a rat, in a kitchen. Not funny.
Aww, I’ll check back with you on Nov 7th, if we win. ;^) A++
Where is everyone? 15 minutes after the bell and you are the only one to stagger in.
They’re all out doing homework.
You expect them to be happy without preparation?
I was in a state of rhathymia watching the 1968 Version of “The Producers” instead of the usual depressing newscasts.
The Obama Administration’s rhathymia has been replaced with morose dread as the 2012 elections loom large.
Obamots say “He’ll buy me a
Cell phone,” which brings them rhathymia
They get phones from the louse
But no free gas or house
I just laugh, singing “River, Cry Me A”
Just saw on twitter that Amb Rice blew off Netanyaho’s speech and went to lunch with Hillary instead. If they are not thrown out of office with a landslide we are doomed.
Cry me a river......whorealdo rivera was on Fox this morning still defending the coverup. RME
A+++ Where is that lady who Obama was going to save? No rent, no car payments, gas paid for......whatever. Hope she’s bitter.
I want to be there when he gets the news. I deserve it after all 4 years of this. A++
My escape is a long walk outside or some other exercise. My son put together my new recliner bike for an added choice in workout. I still like my elliptical best...I have a tv and vcr in front of me when I am on the elliptical. Watching Burn Notice on it while working out. A++
I sent a tweet about Whorealdo to Fox and Friends:
Geraldo says Bibi is incendiary. “He wants what he wants.” Yes, Mr. Rivera, he wants his nation to NOT get blown to bits!
oh, boy! Romney to meet with Netanyahu today, while Obama campaigns.
I walk Linda-The-Dog 3-5 Miles every morning. It’s a very relaxing and good time for both of us. :-)
what a lucky dog!
