My New Favorite Word

There is this mind-bogglingly accurate portrayal of what Senate Republicans are doing on the Stimulus Bill posted at If you click on the title of this blog, you will be taken directly there.

Rob Kall has invented my new favorite word. Economasturbation. Ypu have to read the whole article to really grasp the definition, but here is the gist of it:

The way they are regressing back to the failed tax cut idea. It is so mindless, so right wing reflexive- it is sub-cortical, dead-brained economasturbation.

I kept thinking that the Republicans were fiddling with themselves as the American economy was burning. Rob just gave the terminology to my thoughts.
