word du jour: HYPOCRISY (think Repooplicans)

Today’s word du jour was inspired by Helen Philpot–and quite honestly I don’t care if that’s a nom de plum or not.  It’s a damned good blog.

Merriam Webster online defines HYPOCRISY as:

1: a feigning to be what one is not or to believe what one does not ; especially : the false assumption of an appearance of virtue or religion

2: an act or instance of hypocrisy

Helen also asks us to define CULPABLE:

1archaic : guilty , criminal

2: meriting condemnation or blame especially as wrong or harmful <culpable negligence>

Helen also asks us to define GLUTTONY:

1 : excess in eating or drinking

2 : greedy or excessive indulgence

Need we say more?
