Favorite Word:

mendacious
I notice that this adjective is used more and more often since it is our bane to have a mendacious, moronic, Marxist mulatto 'infecting' the White House.

Least Favorite Word:

racist
This is perhaps the most misused word in English. When America's hoi polloi say 'racist', they mean to say 'bigot'. A racist thinks that his race is superior to all others; a bigot simply doesn't like, or indeed hates other ethnic groups. Most people are bigots; a few are racists. I am a bigot because I despise certain groups.
