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!

a sharp blade or wheel attached to the beam of a plow, used to cut the ground in advance of the plowshare.

Also, coulter.

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...

one of an English breed of hardy sheep, having coarse, long wool.

Yup, another Republican sheep...

That name just fits like a

a glove worn for catching a baseball or short for "mitten".

So, two sperm are swimming in Coulter…
…The first one says, “Man, we’ve been swimming a long time–when will we reach the egg?”……..Second one says, “Patience, dude, we’re not even past her esophagus yet!”

Nice......It's impossible to get past her esophagus with that goiter there btw...

What a horrible way for a man to spill his seed Mary Ellen.

Oh the humanity!

Then of course there's McCain:

Mc : Gaelic ancestral name to mean "son of",
while Cain as we all know, murdered his brother and is a symbol for evil. As in "to raise Cain" which means to cause trouble or commotion.

Like father, like son?

Well said Morris. I am writing a book on the guy and didn't know that. I have a feeling it may turn into the quote at the beginning of a chapter. And if it does, you get full credit my friend.
