This Dictionary is a milestone in lexicon history: the first comprehensive, unvarnished dictionary of American political bullshit; it is a public service, a Rosetta Stone that arms average Americans against the wiles of those who would beguile them.

Empowered by it, everyone will be able to translate a seemingly sincere promise like“Someone from my staff will get back to you” into its real meaning: “Don’t hold your breath. You didn’t contribute to my campaign so why would you be so dumb as to think I’d ever do anything for you?”       

The widest purpose of this Dictionary is to shovel the country free of the political equivalent of what makes the grass grow and help average Americans hold those who represent them to their word; the narrowest, to put politicians on guard that we are on to them and that they now dissemble at their peril. Nothing has been held back; nothing has been sugar-coated. You’re getting the unvarnished truth. And that’s not you-know-what!
