    Only because it's so unusual to see any. HEW is the stand out exception in that regard.

    nincom-poop! You've taken name-calling to a new level! Not obscene, not offensive, but "cute" in a "gee Wally, Eddie Haskell called me nincompoop" kinda way!

    What exactly is a nincom? I know what a poop is, but not a nincom.

    I'll have to google that, to see if my feelings should be hurting right now.

    I also looked at FoxNews, (the only honest, fair and balanced news source) and surprise, the links to Cheney-Halliburton "could not be found".

    Nincompoop. Interesting acronym. Probably something of military origin like FUBAR.

    The origin of nincompoop is a matter of speculation, although there are a few interesting theories. One of the earliest literary uses of "nincompoop" occurred in a 1676 play called The Plain Dealer, written by British playwright William Wycherley. One character scolds another, calling him a "senseless, impertinent, quibbling, drivelling, feeble, paralytic, impotent, fumbling, frigid nincompoop." Even earlier references contain the variant spellings "nicompoop" and "nickumpoop."

    Some have speculated that the word nincompoop is a nonsense word which combines elements of other words implying ignorance or stupidity. The word "ninny," for example, was a corruption of "innocent," meaning a na´ve or gullible person. In Dutch, the word poop was often used to describe a fool. It is conceivable that the originator of "nincompoop" was seeking to combine several unsophisticated words into one nonsensical but descriptive word.

    Others believe the word nincompoop was a corruption of the Latin phrase non compos mentis, meaning "not of sound mind." This theory has not been universally embraced, however, since the original spellings of "nincompoop" do not suggest such a relationship. Another similar theory suggests that nincompoop was inspired by a French phrase, ne comprend pas, meaning "he does not understand." It is possible that a British native familiar with the French language playfully created a new guttural insult, complete with a coarse Dutch ending.

    I'm impressed. Quite sophisticated! But you knew that already!

    Oops, I forgot to cite the above passage.....what a nimcompoop! I got it from Google, and thought it would copy the title, source, etc...

    I am not easily, or at all, led or unduly alarmed about much. However Obama surrounds himself with true believers and for a guy that everyone claims is so politically savvy he doesn't seem to have a clue. That either means he's not up to the job or he truly believes that the American people are a bunch of idiots and only he and those he surrounds himself with knows what's best for all of us. If it's either of the above it is, at the very least, cause for concern.

    LOL. Thanks for the random Cheney/Halliburton links. I wasn't disputing that that sort of lib spewage was available on the internet for you to blindly parrot; I was disputing the accuracy and veracity of some of their/your spewage.

    Btw, which is the link that confirms that he received $42 million severance pay? Or did you just pull that figure out of thin air and throw it up against the wall?

    Lastly, here's 5,725 hits for "Cheney Halliburton" on the Fox site http://www.foxnews.com/search-result...ey+halliburton If you take the exhaustive research step of clicking on that link, on the very first page you'll find FOX reporting on nearly every one of the Halliburton/Cheney claims you've made. I don't consider FOX to be the paragon of journalistic integrity, but their accuracy rate is about 42 million X better than yours.
