New terms: Ignoranus n. being both stupid and an asshole
The Dopeler Effect: The tendency of stupid ideas to start sounding better when they come at you rapidly

The Bozone Layer: The layer of dumb surrounding die hard Reupublicans--it is what prevents new information and facts from getting through.

I wish I could take credit for these, but I saw them on another blog yesterday and think they are good enough to warrant sharing. :)

Ignoranus is my favorite!

1. A few more (these all came from a contest held by the WaPo a few years ago):
Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with.

Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.

Foreploy: Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of getting laid.

Giraffiti: Vandalism painted very, very high.

Sarchasm: The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it.

Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.

Osteopornosis: A degenerate disease.

Karmageddon: It's like, when everybody is sending off all these really bad vibes, right? And then, like, the Earth explodes and it's like, a serious bummer.

Glibido: All talk and no action.

Ignoranus is my favorite, though.
