repsac3 commented on the word resack
The first instance of this clever name for me appeared at the following blog post:The Oracular Opinion: Evan says good-Bayh to Washington, lovingly created by a gentleman who didn't share my politics, who calls himself: the malcontent. 'nuff said, I think.
Explanation: The words in this Wordie list--"not my screen name"--are all accidental or intentional misspellings or misuses of my screen name, repsac3.

repsac3 commented on the word Teaper
First seen (by me, anyway) in the following blog post comment:
Gateway Pundit: Eric Odom on Tea Party Nation Organizers: They Don’t Know What’s Going On & Haven’t From Day One:
"I expect any Teaper who criticizes another Teaper to immediately present a CRYSTAL clear reason. Anyone who choses not to attend a for-profit event, or a too high priced event, fine. But… why would you criticize? For me, the criticism of the Tea Party Nation is far to vague."

repsac3 commented on the word Teapublican
First seen (by me, anyway) in the following article: Tea Partiers aim to remake local GOP | Cincinnati.Com: (as "Tea-publicans," with a dash.)
"Republican leaders in some parts of the country are more than a little distressed over the possibility of a "Tea-publicans" taking over the party structure, but, in Hamilton County, chairman Alex Triantafilou has been encouraging them to run - although he said he hopes they focus on running for slots that are not already filled."

repsac3 commented on the word I miss wordie
I'm missing the wordie widget that allowed me to keep a list of the words I most recently added at the site on the sidebar of my blog. (I replaced the wordie "list of my words" with the Wordnik "word of the day," but it just isn't the same...) Hopefully it'll come back one day...

repsac3 commented on the word stimthought
I know this ain't the proper place for it, but I can't get to your profile here on wordnik, to leave this comment there. (Either it's a wordie-wordnik bug, or you made your profile private.) However, in a fit of serendipity, I saw on the zeitgeist page that you had recently commented here (& from the looks of things, will again, before too long.)
So... I belatedly want to let you know that I see your repsaclicated, and raise you one gangerhantabulous. Not your screen name

repsac3 commented on the user repsac3
I dig it, gangerh... (I'll dig it more when I can make use of it here at our new wordnik home (the wordie-wordnik team is swattin' them bugs as quick as they can, I know), but I most certainly dig it...
repsac3 commented on the word intertextualism
First saw this word here, in this context:
"Once again, liberals fail to understand the simple concept of "intertextualism".
Or they do understand it, and they follow Bill Clinton's most enduring quote "Deny, deny, deny."'
After searching for meaning, I found the word (and meaning, sorta) here: What is Semiotics?
"The second approach can be called "intertextualism". Attention is transferred to the relationship between texts. The notion of the "text" itself is universalising: it is claimed more or less categorically that the whole world is a text. The elements constituting a particular text are thought of as borrowed from and referring to other texts. It is not immanent structure but Reference and Quotation that become the main subject of interest and the generators of a text's meaning. Analysis is directed not to the relations between elements within the text but to the relations between elements and their constellations within a "semiotic universum" containing in itself all real and potential texts."

repsac3 commented on the word resackofshit3
Generally, you have to either have
1) a difficult screen name (I don't, but some do), or
2) be controversial in another person or group's eyes. (That's me... A liberal who visits conservative blogs, and frequents liberal blogs where conservatives come to play. Whether I'm in the "wrong" place or "they" are, it tends to lead to a little childish namecalling and/or screen name twisting. If there were pigtails & inkwells, there'd be inky split ends, too. It's just the nature of the beast... But rather than reply in kind, I just add 'em to the list.)

repsac3 commented on the list not-my-screen-name
Well, they're not all from him (though the majority are) and yes, I do find it cathartic... (God's honest truth, it all started when I noticed how many folks switch the "p" and the "s" in "repsac," making it "respac." I have a theory that it has something to do with the word "respect," but I still found it interesting.)
And finally, whether from the neodouche or elsewhere, I find some of 'em kinda funny & worth keeping a list of...
While I cannot deny there's ANY malice in my listing 'em, for the most part, they bring a smile to my face.
Thanks for caring, though...

I'm sorry folks... I guess I assumed that this was all alot more clear than it actually must've been.
The ones that include the "brilliant creation" comment are silly ad hominem attacks by the college professor named in the first comment. Where possible, I have included a link to his use of the word, in context. I'm sorry for any confusion that may've resulted here, but to me, it all seemed self-evident.
As I said to JFK elsewhere, it'd be like my replying to him by calling him "HeSoGay," or something... It's silly elementary school nonsense, from a man who clearly ought to know better, given his years and position in the educational community.
I hope that makes it all more clear.
repsac3 commented on the word repsacromulanbrokeback3
It is a takeoff on my screen-name, JFK, much like calling someone named Ronald, "Ronald McDonald Doo-doo-head," or turning your handle into "HeSoGay," or something.
I'd think the level of its brilliance would be self-evident, especially in the context of the Wordie word list to which it belongs.

repsac3 commented on the word placebobama
- a candidate/president who makes you feel better about yourself and your situation, although nothing about yourself or your situation has actually changed.
I first saw it on a blog the other day (5/3/09), but the first reference to it I can find is from a 2006 Harper's article.
While the blog and the article seemed to be saying that's all Obama is, I disagree. Nevertheless, I do like the word.

repsac3 commented on the word james
According to the Is This Your Name? website;
As a forename: Origin: Hebrew Meaning: Supplanter
As a surname: Origin: (Origin Hebrew) The same as Jacob, he that supplants.
(Forename (middle name, actually), for me)

repsac3 commented on the word walter
As a forename: Origin: Teutonic, Meaning: Rule People ruler
As a surname: Origin: (Origin German) A wood-master or keeper of the wood.
(It is my forename.)
repsac3 commented on the word casper
As a forename, it originates in German, and means Royal, according to the Is This Your Name? website. (It is actually my surname, but the site doesn't offer any info that way... Interestingly (to me, anyway), my real forename walter changes meaning when used as a surname...)
repsac3 commented on the word supplanter
According to the Is This Your Name? website, my forename (technically my middle name) means supplanter, and has it's origin in Hebrew.

repsac3 commented on the word drunken forest
"The second, and far more interesting term I heard yesterday was found in the melting ice fields of the far north, a linguistic addition that owes its genesis to climate change: drunken forests. Apparently many pine and spruce forests in southern Alaska took root in permafrost, which is now melting, casting the still-living trees every which way."

repsac3 commented on the word comma-dancing
First sighting: "And someone should have followed up on Petraeus' curious statement that the US isn't providing weapons to Sunni tribes. David Kurtz at Talking Points Memo made a plausible guess that this comma-dancing may be based on the notion that the US isn't giving weapons to the tribes, but instead giving them money to buy weapons." - Bruce Miller, The Blue Voice
A google search revealed this as a definition (written by the same blogger that wrote the comment above, three years earlier): "I use "comma-dancing" to describe the hair-splitting over words of which conservatives often seem so fond. E.g., "No, I said 'some people say that all Democrats but Zell Miller are subhuman degenerates'; I didn't say that *I* said that. (Ain't sayin' I didn't say it either.)" "By the way, I stole that "comma-dancing" phrase from someone and I've assimilated it so much that I've forgotten where it came from."
repsac3 commented on the word cow-orker
First saw this as a running joke at the snopes.com Urban Legends yahoogroup (based on a typo there, as I recall the story, though a cite at cow orker says Dilbert writer Scott Adams coined the term). A contributer to the snopes list was also responsible for creating/getting the term glurge into the dictionary.
repsac3 commented on the word co-working
I'm familiar with coworker (or co-worker--&, at one yahoogroup I used to read, cow-orker, which started as a humble typo, but so amused the regular readership it became a running joke, adopted by all.)--but I never before saw the "cowork" root used either by itself, or with any other ending but "__er" or "__ers."
repsac3 commented on the word xenohomonecropedapyrobestiality
Of course, you can say it backwards, which is bestialipyropedanecrohomoonex, but that's going a bit too far, don't you think?
Big RHPS fan (& Riff-Raff in the floor show, for a few short months)... No better time 8>)

repsac3 commented on the word wordie seventh commandment
I'm kinda new here, but I like the whole free form idea... Make your own rules for yourself, and try to avoid stepping on toes, or harshing mellows, or enjerkifying yourself. I think it's kind of interesting to see the guidelines & other Wordie chioces folks set up for themselves...
I thought nothing of scooping up whatever words made my boat float, from wherever I found 'em, including other folks lists, comments, names... Since reading that some might harbor a concept of theft round here, I have thought about it... ...& I'm still taking words that give me a tickle from wherever I find 'em, because... ...well, because the word speaks to me...
I've enjoyed reading the commandments/rules/guidelines and thinkin' about 'em, but that doesn't mean I intend to follow a single one of 'em... ...unless I want to (or am forced to, which don't look like it's ever going to happen), that is...
My too scents (enda quwater toog row on)

...if there's anybody watching.
What is stealing another's words, anyway? I just started a list specifically for the words I encounter here on wordie (either for the first time, or ones that I'd heard, but never bothered to find out what they meant.)
I hope that doesn't make me a badie wordie thiefie...

repsac3 commented on the word great ceasar's ghost
Did I read somewhere that everything added to Wordie is in the system, even if deleted?
If so, the phrase "eat ceasar's ghost" has just joined the discarded flotsom... (Yes, I was tempted to keep it... 8>)

http://www.phish.net/faq/lemonwheel.html: "A lemonwheel is a slice of lemon (not an eliptical wedge, but a cylindrical slice; and not a half slice, but a full circle), typically cut along the radius (from the center to an edge) and hung on the edge of the mouth glass with certain cocktails."

From here on up, it's down hill all the way.
Nobody's going to put his neck out on a limb.

I also didn't realize that after moving a few things around, all of my digs at this point leave one feeling dizzy (which I'll also add, post comment.) tangle & wiggle & giggle & a few others were better fits among the teasers (which is prolly why I dig 'em in the first place...)
