Congratulations conservative nutjobs. You were so successful last year at making asses of yourself in public that the nice people over at Oxford are adding you to the dictionary.

Included along with lots of facebook and twitter-related terms are these wingnutty wonders:

birther – a conspiracy theorist who challenges President Obama’s US birth certificate

death panel – a theoretical body that determines which patients deserve to live, when care is rationed

teabagger – a person who protests President Obama’s tax policies and stimulus package, often through local demonstrations known as “Tea Party” protests (in allusion to the Boston Tea Party of 1773

No mention of the other teabagger term, though I’d argue they both tend to describe the same person.

Completely unrelated, they also added:

tramp stamp – a tattoo on the lower back, usually on a woman

Lovely.
