This year's term was "Political Correctness", which we are know is absolutely killing this country. Problem is we are letting the left set the standard for political correctness.
Anyway, the winner of the contest defined Political Correctness this way:
"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.."
