Today's Word: "Suicider"
I heard * use it in his Press conference, so it must be a Real Word and not a Made-Up one.

1. Shouldn't this embarrass the hell out of every American?
How can anyone still argue that the man is not an idiot?

3. Just for fun, I searched "suicider" on Google and online dictionaries.
Not a single dictionary had a listing for "suicider", and many would ask "Did you mean...?" (as did Google). Would that the press would ask this question of Bush.

The only references to the word "suicider" found on Google seemed to be related to a song of that name by the Finnish band Sentenced. It could be that either Bush is a secret fan of Scandinavian Death Metal, or, like Sentenced, he likely just had problems translating from Finnish back to English. Or it could be simply that Bush is a moron.

Somehow, I think the latter scenario is more likely.

2. "Suicider":
One who preforms the act of suiciding.
"John is known as a suicider."
See also applecider, a self-destructing apple.

5. strategery
Just read that the WH political crew thought this was such a cute word that's what they call meetings to dope out their next political move, "The Committee on Strategery".
Ain't that sweet?
:puke:

6. It's actually probably what they call them in meetings/briefings &c.
It has that clipped sound that idiots think is hip but is, actually, rather pathetic. That is, not something you'll hear on West Wing, but in the W. White House, it's probably thought of as "cute."
