"Bushwalian"
Could we meme this please to mean lying bigtime.
This administration surely has lied daily to the
country and the world.

I'm tired of "Clintonesque" meaning he lied about sex.

Spread it around.

1. I agree,Clinton didn't lie about sex, he asked what the courts definition
was and they said screwing... not oral. he answered as any lawyer, or as you probably would to the "definition" of the court. and the right wingers wouldn't jump up waving their arms to volunteer any unsolicited info to a federal court............

3. I'm glad to see this fine point
getting made again. Not that it will do any good. But it makes me happy to see it...instead of the lie about the lie.

2. Fine tune the defination and I'll use it.
Ammend it to something like: 'Lying bigtime to promote and enable robbing the US Treasury while betraying all of the principles this country was founded upon and evading taking responsibility for any shit that hits the fan.' That is 'Bushwalian' in my book.

4. Bushwhacked is getting some play, too
Franken mentioned Molly Ivins book, "Bush Whacked" on Leno last night. Jay did a double-take and the audience laughed.

6. I think of bushwacked as more the action against the country
Bushwalian actually means the state of being a liar.

7. Hmmm...Isn't Bushwalian A Noun?
We need some action here...a verb. Something along the lines of "Oh, there he goes Bushing again"...or "he just got bushed out of the country club"...Borking comes to mind.

Bushwhack...and not my choice, just an observation, is a verb...Bushwallian works well as an overview of this dark era (like Orwellian).

Now if you can find a verb that doubles for a noun...for example: Bullshit...then you've got a real winner.

8. noun works
adjective also.

bushwacked does work as a verb.
I am trying to replace "clintonesque" is the point.

9. it sucks. . . makes no sense
I suppose its taking from "Orwellian", but the words seems forced, primarily because there's no "wal" in Bush. I say you just stick with easy terms like "idiotic" or "jackassesque" (which slips rather easily off the tongue I think youll agree) -- people will know youre talking about Bush.
