Google and Yahoo.

They both asked me if I meant hypocrisy.

Looked at some of the sites with the word (some had both spellings) but they all seemed to be talking about the same thing.

I never thought it was that a big a deal until you offered the definition, until you claimed it was a different word and not a misspelling (You could have argued that it was an alternate spelling, you know.)

~ I learned of the word quite some time ago when brought to my attention, and found it very quickly using the Yahoo search engine.

JCP, you are too much!  I found many links with hypocracy --- all spelled wrong...lol.  If you are using poetic license and analogizing it with demoCRACY, then that's all well and good, but that has nothing to do with being a good debator.  A good debator always substantiates his statements with factual information and references including sources.

Really Brad?  Another H?

HypocHrisy? -- When Christopher is being sarcastic?

Hypocriseh?  -- When Thurston Howell says it?  

HypocrAcy -- a hybridization of Hypocrisy and Piracy -- to hijack a thread while accusing others of being off topic...

I don't know about you all, but I have heard the term hypoCRACY used many times to describe a hypocritical government. Whether it is in the dictionary or not, that doesn't matter to me. Homer Simpson's "DU-OH" took quite a while to make it to the dictionary after years of usage.

Oh, you were using poetic license, I see.  

Langmaker.com makes the following stipulation:  "Some of the neologisms are of recent coinage but are in widespread use, though you won't find them in a dictionary (e.g., moonbat), while others are used by just a few people (e.g., humorang). Please don't mistake this site for being an accurate dictionary; by design, it's not, but is rather a place to celebrate word coinings."

So, JCP, did you make this one up and submit it to that website?  Just curious.

(sigh) Liberal person, read what I written, that will answer your question. No wonder why conservatives are much better thinkers.

JCP -- You call me liberal when you are the one making up or using "coined" words? Maybe you have redefined that word, too?     Or, maybe you've taken a que from GWB and don't want to admit it when you've made an error?

~ How can you redefine a word that doesn't exist? Seriously, you missed the point, entirely. And the fact is, it is so simple, the entire exchange, that is shouldn't even exist.

Exactly.

I acknowledged your play on words, JCP, so tell me, what did I miss?

You're right, it shouldn't.
