    Unlike Anonymous 1:03 pm, I believe in the People of this State and Nation–so nothing’s decided.

    And I’ve already used “surreal” which really describes approach and method more than the election itself.

    Therefore, I’ll go with what most GOPers can embrace and would always great with open arms:

    *Performance-based*

    (Sorry all you spinners out there.)

    Hmmmmmmmm…I like this thread.

    I’m assuming that those who used foreign words know that they often have multiple definitions and that the meaning is therefore determined by the context within which it’s found.

    I’m making that assumption because if those who threw the words out there knew that, it makes the whole exercise even more fun than it originally seemed. (Unless everyone was using Google Translate, of course, which I do not believe is the case in many instances.)

    Just like “wonderland” for example.

    For example, there’s the standard definition, the song (which I’ve always liked), the movie (depraved), and an association for some with “Alice in Wonderland,” which–of course, then sets off a whole new set of word associations.

    This is an intriguing thread.
