    Turdblossom (turd blos' um) n., alt -ese, adj. -ian. 1. the standard language spoken in American conservative discourse 2. language derived from classic propaganda, emotion-laden discourse, and wedded to neo-conservative buzz words 3. instigated during "Teflon" Ron Reagan's era and refined by Bush consultant, the eponymous Carl Rove (aka, Turdblossom) 4. based in magical thinking 5. classical Greek derivative of sophistry 6. Texas derivative of bullshit 7. Brit derivative of shite 8. Fox News derivative of fair and balanced reportage 9. Though the language is richly figurative, the predominant trope is irony, which exists in a blind spot for those fluent in the language . [phoney Texas slang meaning "fart" or hot, smelly air; pet nickname given to Rove by his president and "boss"]

      What dictionary is that from?  You publishing your own?
      A liberal must've coined that word, just like they coined the word "homophobia"...

      I use the word "hogwash" quite often.  But it really IS in the dictionary...

        Publishing my own?  Absolutely.  Someone needs to.  Conservos made up the whole danged language.  I am just trying to interpret it for, you know, sane people.

          You know what would be great? If you started a half dozen or so threads that are essentially the same single theme you keep repeating over and over. That would be so fresh and interesting!

    Haha, but the word in itself is pretty funny. Even if it were about liberal propaganda I'd still have a giggle. xD
