Hot Off the Press Political Lexicon!

`


Preface #1: For the benefit of any of my readers, who dwell far away from the American political scene and/or who don’t dwell on politics at all, the acronym, DINO, stands for Democrat(s) In Name Only.

Preface #2: The Stateside political schism has become so razor sharp, that even my merely typing about this risks inflicting figurative, disfiguring, bleeding, painful paper-cuts on my fingers. At issue, is how bygone monikers, such as Democrat and Republican, simply don’t “cut it” anymore. My working thru the problem, this early Sunday a.m., has generated the following, long overdue, bipartisan rebranding / truth in advertising, etymological updates:
