Great new word: "libidophobes"

In his column in today's NY Times, Nicholas Kristof says, "Unless the libidophobes in the Bush administration mandate chastity belts, their opposition to Plan B, the emergency contraceptive, amounts to a pro-abortion policy."

Libidophobes is a great word for the Bushies because it goes beyond just their fear of homosexuals and addresses their fear of all things sexual.

Like their opposition to Plan B.

Another word we like when it comes to the Bushies: patrioticism, meaning, the ironic obedience to a point of view that dissembles the very meaning of patriotism, as would be defined by the historic acts and the model of the Founders.

Relative definition: Colbert's "truthiness."

Love your site, btw.
