"Beclowned"

I wasn't as impressed with this Tim Blairism as Glenn Reynolds or the Pajamas Media editors were.

Sure, it's always fun to have a new word to play with, but it just didn't have the magic to me of, say, suddenly dusting off the word "jerkoff," which I haven't used since tenth grade, and marvelling at its sublime beauty. (Previous re-discoveries of passe curse words I've had fun with have been "hump," "tool," "chump," and, of course, the now passe again "douchebag.")

But maybe they're on to something -- because the execrable Tbogg seems to hate it:

The wingnuts have a new expression: beclowned. [Links omitted.]

Watch them work this to death over the next few days like a child who realizes he can get a reaction by repeating "poopy" over and over again. I guess this is the new "stuck on stupid" or "Democracy, Whiskey, Sexy!", which didn't quite pan out the way they thought it wuld.


Watch them work this to death over the next few days like a child who realizes he can get a reaction by repeating "poopy" over and over again.

This from the side of the aisle whose major contribution to invective has been six million variations on "Chimperor McHitlerburton" for the past six years.

Did I say that was their major contribution to invective? That understates it, doesn't it? That's been their primary contribution to political discourse, period.

I'd say "beclowned" is a damn-sight better than "Resident Chimpy McMonkeyMurderer" and its endless retarded variants.
