«Palin è una nincompoop»

Nincompoop. Non avevo mai sentito questa parola, scritta a proposito di Sarah Palin dalla sempre grande Peggy Noonan sul Wall Street Journal e da oggi la mia preferita in lingua inglese.
Vuol dire persona stupida, ignorante, incompetente.
Qui una definizione più precisa: «The word "nincompoop" has certainly earned its ranking as one of the most enjoyable words to pronounce in the English language, regardless of the fact that no one quite knows how or when it was coined. Essentially, a nincompoop is a fool, a stupid person whose incompetence or naïveté is quite apparent. It is often used to describe people of a much lower social ranking, although some may describe an unpopular or incompetent leader as an "utter nincompoop"».
