Can’t waste that one.

I shot this off in a footnote, and thought it was too good to let slip by unremarked. A new entry in Strider’s Dictionary:

li•ber•al
n.: Any person who, especially in the course of a political discussion or debate, publicly claims to not know what a liberal is. Usage: I am not a liberal! In fact, I don’t even know what a “liberal” is.

Update 28 Feb 2006: Added usage note.
