pjbaldes commented on the word strategery
Since Rush Limbaugh has adopted this word, which infuriates me, the new definition should be about the use of the word in culture, let's turn it around on him.....
Strategery: verb:the act of attempting to legitimize a word through use in order to convince others to add it to the lexicon. repeating a mistake to make it not a mistake.
successful acts of strategery are Steven Colbert's addition of "truthiness" to the dictionary
