While we're on dictionary definitions of trampy wingers, my good pal Rick Perlstein, fantastic historian (he wrote the best account of the rise of the Right and Goldwaterism I have ever read) and good progressive, led me to this one.
I mean this stuff just writes itself!
col·ter Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[kohl-ter] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
a sharp blade or wheel attached to the beam of a plow, used to cut the ground in advance of the plowshare.
I hear the alternative definition is:
woman with Cheney-sized goiter who shows up on television in cocktail lounge outfits looking like she just tossed her lunch.
But, of course, that one could just be a rumor...
