"Mendoucheous."

Fred4Pres, commenting in the Laurence Tribe post, uses the world "mendoucheous." An obvious portmanteau word, it's easy to understand, but I go and look it up in Urban Dictionary anyway, because I want to see if it has (semi-)official recognitions, and it is listed and defined, but no one's voted on it yet...



I give it the thumbs up.

First!

Right-wingers and their creative insults. Gotta love 'em.

Second!

Asshat - that is hilarious.!

Rose said...

LOL

Shouting Thomas said...

Yes, but no definition of the word so far.

MadisonMan said...

If Obama came out for breathing, then half the blogosphere would call it mendoucheous.

I thought of that as I read in the morning paper Brett Hulsey's reaction to Scott Walker tweeting. (For all you Scott Walker fans, he's an AI fan -- or at least, he watches it).

Whatever it is, I'm against it!

Obama is against breathing.

Produces CO2, you know!

Douchnozzles works better for me. How many people know what mendacious means?

traditionalguy said...

I believe that is the brand name on Obama's Teleprompters.

The Bose Corporation has the trade mark.

Oh well, I lied.

Widely Seen said...

The definition could be along the lines of producing a shower of lies...

Wow, finally a C_H post I can get on board with (and understand). Add douchenugget. I'm old school.

Geoff Matthews said...

"uses the world".

Spelling troll.

Jim Ellison said...

Wouldn't it be redundant to call someone a "mendouceous asshat?"

xnar said...

That Obamatard certainly is a mendoucheous asshat.

Browndog said...

Oh no!

Althouse celebrating a "made-up" word?

Some may find cause to mock the Good professor, similar to this.

Consider it refutiation

traditionalguy said...

Ok, what's an asshat? Is a hole involved in the answer?

As Spencer Tracy once noted, "The English language is a damned poor enough means of communication as it is, so we should be able to use all the words available".

Right-wingers and their creative insults. Gotta love 'em.

Once again showing our imagination and ingenuity.

traditionalguy said...

Browndog...One must spell made up words correctly. It is refuddiation.

I believe that it is from an Elmer Fudd cartoon. Elmer Refudded that crazy rabbit.

I do like "asshat". It has a certain clarity of intent and imagery.

When stumbling around the Urban Dictionary, I discovered "question fart". I never heard of that, but if I am ever in the presence of one, it's gonna put me on the floor now.

Cripes! I had to look up 'portmanteau' before moving on to 'menducheous'.

Big Daddy for one.

Alex Ignatiev said...

Little known fact: a critical mass of the mendoucheous in America can be found in Mendouchino County, CA.

Browndog said...

I find it hard to believe "asshat" is new to Althouse readers.

It's as old as "moonbat" and "libtard"

...all of which are accurate descriptions...just sayin'

Quaestor said...

Mendoucheous - of or pertaining to a particularly vile sort of mendacity, ranking somewhere below statistics, as in the mendacity of hope.

wv: revirts - devolved previrts (coined by Major Bartholomew "Bat" Guano, USA)

Fred4Pres said...

Glad to help with creative references from the right wing.

Fred4Pres said...

Asshat is more of a way to get around filters that ban asshole.

virgil xenophon said...

I hope everyone here knows that all of this--ALL of IT--started with none other than President Dwight D. Eisenhower when he coined the word "finalization." It's been open-season ever since...Before then? Not much shakin.'

Fred4Pres said...

I suppose some lefties might call me mendoucheous for suggesting Larry Tribe should go hiking in Yellowstone with peanut butter smeared all over him...

But I was joking and even if I wasn't, bears have to eat too.

MarkG said...

The word now has 53 thumbs up, so we accomplished something today.

Some mendoucheous asshat gave it a thumbs down. Thanks, Garage.

The Mendacity of Hope.

I claim the word "millionaireogance" for the attitude of those who think their money or status qualifies them to be a-holes. See "Alec Baldwin" for the exemplar.

chuckR said...

Great - another new-to-me colorful descriptor for our pin head brethren. I'll resolve to use it next week along with presstitute, which describes members of the MSM.

Twofer - boy, that David Plouffe sure is mendoucheous, but the presstitutes will consign his latest imbecilic pronouncement to oblivion.

Jack Bauer said...

I prefer to think of myself as a member of the Far Righteous.

One hopes that will reach the Urban Dictionary.

Bagoh @ 1:23 PM. Might I suggest you just roll down your car's window?

Today, Murdoch closed his World News. And, we've been delivered of "REVERSE FERRET." Truly, a worthy award winnah. Which describes gutter journalism's tactic, "of dropping a ferret down someone's pants" knowing the ferret was a false charge. Getting caught. And, a Murdoch editor runs into the press room shouting "REVERSE FERRET" ...

Then, closing a profitable newspaper just to stop the police from investigating Murdoch any further.

Curious George at 11:52 ...

It's a douche nugget ... only if the douche water ... flushes it out into the open.

The douche nozzle, however, gets to do its work by going into the vagina.

It's not mendacious to douche.

"...presstitute, which describes members of the MSM." Actually I thought a presstitute was a protester who goes out of his way to get on camera, like segway guy.
