The Dictionary of Republicanisms

The post below is a tough act to follow. Unable to do so and save face, I throw caution to the winds and bring you some entries from Katrina Vanden Heuvel's soon to be released (well, November) book, The Dictionary of Republicanisms.

Somewhat in the spirit of Ambrose Bierce:

Election Fraud, n.: Counting every vote

Tort Reform, n.: Corporate immunity and impunity

Bipartisanship, n.: When Democrats compromise.

Freedom, n.: What Arabs want but cannot achieve without Western military intervention. It bears a striking resemblance to chaos.

Faith, n.: The stubborn belief that God approves of Republican moral values despite the preponderance of evidence to the contary.

Activist judge, n.: A judge who attempts to protect the rights of minorities.
