Beware the Jabberwonk, my son

Bill Clinton used to fret over the meanings of words like “is.” Today, the tendency is to go straight for the full Scrabble rack:

“President Obama’s administration has been working diligently to perfect what is often seen as a crude and much maligned concept of an economic system that can provide not only positronic endibulation, but also supply inverse bilateral erapsilance, thereby enabling automatic synchronization of actuarial credisrodicants.

“We refer to this groundbreaking fiscal emarsifoliation technique as the Obamanation Destrafulating Rescamulator and believe its introduction to the current economic recession will bring instant antidismarnication and redistribulation not only to Wall Street but to mortgage lumorizators and loan gefinerationists all across the torminic spectrum.

“The basic premise of our nation’s fiscal system has always been, of course, reliptification and dehusticating, but in the absence of proper fedeglation, a dreaped fenata can occur almost without warning, throwing reminatusilage and gradofleximission into deep scintillious egrappocation, or if you prefer, a classic nopped fenata.”

After that, it starts to get complicated.

You gotta admit, as bandersnatches go, this is among the frumiousest.

    After reading that excerpt, I feel most en-clue-ified.
