This year, Sarah Palin created a very memorable neologism, and now that word has become famous like its politician-turned-reality-star creator! Yes, the word voted in by the good people at the New Oxford American Dictionary is refudiate.
Colbert offers some suspect political analysis for Republicans. A nice zinger in “The Word” segment: When you can vote for the president [in 2008], the Republicans will need a platform.” [On-screen: “Hopefully with a trap door.”]
Stephen Colbert offered this riff on racial tribalism in America, after learning that whites tend to live amongst other whites. Heres a taste: ғIm colorblind. I donҒt see race, folks, and I always thought my gated community was incredibly diverse. But, uh, today I asked around and it turns out that everyone at last weeks ґsmooth jazz and mayonnaise block party was in fact white.Ҕ
Linguists beware; Stephen Colbert has invented a new word: “democrazy.” As the host explains, ?there was a time when I thought the key to Middle East peace was representative government, but then democracy gives us a prime minister who sides with Hezbollah, an Iranian president who wants to go nuclear, and a Palestinian government controlled by Hamas. So, now, I?m thinking maybe we did the wrong thing.?
