Feverishingly yours

If there’s anything amusing at all to come out of the Al Franken-Norm Coleman battle for the title of Mr. Senator from Minnesota, it might be this little made-up word, which comes to us courtesy of the Republican National Lawyers Association (and reported in the Huffington Post):

franken-neologism

Okay, here’s the deal. If they are working at a feverish pace, they were working feverishly. But this kind of neologism makes MRP feel a little feverish, too. I think I better go lie down.

Hat tip to Gopher.
