We live in confusing times. Many words now have different meanings than they used to and for many of us, namely those not initiated in the new use of language pioneered and perfected by the Republican party, it can be hard to keep up. So, as a public service, The Dragnut Times have taken it upon ourselves to provide our readers with a cheat sheet, if you will, to help you better understand what your Republican/conservative/Christian evangelical/Tea Party acquaintances and family members (and certain members of the mass media) actually mean when they use certain words.
