Wingnut Voltron Definition

(I’ve had this post in “Drafts” since January when I had the idea to do a week of new words/theories/definitions, but who knows if that will ever happen, and now that Balloon Juice is building a dictionary, I figured I’d post it. Carry on.)

I heard this phrase the other day and traced the first usage back to Balloon Juice. I think it’s perfect. I’d nominate it for phrase of the year, but it was from last year, so, well, we’ll just have to enjoy it without the awards.

Wingnut Voltron, noun: The act when the right wing blogosphere comes together to form a powerful and passionate opposition to important things, such as scarves in a donut commercial. Derived from the childrens’ cartoon Voltron.
