1. Not to be confused with 'Mittspeaking' (when someone is


for rape before they are against it)

Example: Todd Akin's recent explanation that he was 'mittspeaking' when he used the phrase 'legitimate rape'.

Partial first-person conjugation:

Present tense: I mittspeak, we mittspeak
Past tense: I mittspoke, we mittspoke
