Webster’s Dictionary Announces Word of the Year

I can’t believe that anyone is happy with this:

Merriam-Webster’s annual Words of the Year dating to 2003, when the publisher started making the selection:

2008: Bailout — ”A rescue from financial distress.”

My personal favorite was 2006’s:

2006: Truthiness — ”Truth that comes from the gut, not books.” Coined by Comedy Central satirist Stephen Colbert; selected as Word of the Year by Merriam-Webster’s online users.
