Monday's Word

I found some good ones in studying Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra.

Word of the Day

"Riggish" - adjective [$1000] now chiefly dialect.
Riggish means wanton, licentious.
Sentence:  Would you rather have a riggish president or a foolish president?  From voters' behavior related to Bill Clinton and Herman Cain, versus Al Gore and Rick Perry, the answer is bipartisan:  we prefer a riggish president.

We can refine it further: W. vs. Gore means voters prefer a drunk to a fool.

Conclusion: voters prefer a riggish drunk to a fool.
