Words of the Year

For those of you who are interested, I see that lexicographer harmless_drudge has posted her thoughts about the 2008 Words of the Year, which are:

New Oxford American Dictionary: hypermiling
Webster's New World Dictionary: overshare
Merriam-Webster: bailout
American Dialect Society: bailout

My own, brief thought? Bailout is too obvious a choice. I'd go with Blagojevich. :-)
