Mugwump

October 16, 2004

It’s weird to have people ask me what political party I align myself with. I’ve been asked much as of late, seeing that it is an election year and I am of voting age and what not. If it has not been mentioned in on this blog anywhere yet, let it be mentioned now: I hate politics. Here is a quick impression of a presidential debate:

moderator asks question to candidate one.
candidate one responds for 90 seconds.
candidate two rebuttles for 30 seconds saying, “candidate number one is a liar.”
candidate one responds to the rebuttle with “candidate number two is a liar.”

moderator asks question to candidate two.
candidate two responds for 90 seconds.
candidate one rebuttles for 30 seconds saying, “candidate number two is a liar.”
candidate two responds to the rebuttle with “candidate number one is a liar.”

repeat for 90 minutes.

I get the Merriam-Webster word of the day emailed to me (like a real nerd). Today’s word is:

mugwump \MUG-wump\ noun

1 : a bolter from the Republican party in 1884
*2 : a person who is independent in politics or who remains undecided or neutral

Use in a sentence:

Jesus was such a mugwump.

There is really no good way to end this blog, seeing as though I have probably stirred up controversy again. Guess I’m a poor excuse for an American. What do you do when you are ambivelent?

am·biv·a·lence\noun

1. having two opposing feelings at the same time, or being uncertain about how you feel (ambivalent)
2. simultaneous and contradictory attitudes or feelings (as attraction and repulsion) toward an object, person, or action
3. continual fluctuation (as between one thing and its opposite) b : uncertainty as to which approach to follow
4. characterized by a mixture of opposite feelings or attitudes (ambivalent)

My definition of ambivalence:

A state in which the soul cannot settle on one thing. A state in which Adria Lenore Lambert lives daily.

Use in a sentence:

Adria is a mugwump (not at all indicating that she is the best representation of Jesus, which she is not).
