I would have expected to see the old standby:
antidisestablishmentarianism.

Everyone loves that one!

Pursuant to my first post, I realize now that "antidisestablishmentarianism" is not in the Visual Thesaurus dictionary.

However, "antiestablishmentarianism" is! How 'bout adding that one to your list?
