to palinize

by , under Mike's Posts, Politics

I saw this word, palinize, in a few blogs right after the VP debate. After viewing the debate, I think this term needs a firm defiinition:

to palinize (v.): to deflect, or to attempt to deflect, a serious question by restating a largely unrelated political slogan in a folksy, aw-shucks manner.

    palinize: verb [trans.] to trivialize a serious concern or objection by introducing a flashy but insubstantial distraction.
