Sentence: Nothing was ever Doug's fault, and he would be the first one to admit that. He would raptionalize away any hint of blame for anything that went wrong, and he never hesitated to name a scapegoat for any conceivable problem. Doug made an art out of 'passing the buck'. Even when he was caught taking office supplies from the office, he blamed his parents for not spending enough time with him as a child, because, he explained, they were both workaholics.

Etymology: Rap - blame or punishment, especially for a crime (from Swedish, rapp "light blow" as in a rebuke) + Rationalize - to ascribe problems to causes that superficially seem reasonable and valid, but are actually unrelated (from Latin, ratiōnālis "reason")

Sentence: Basil Fawlty is a faultypowers. He faultypowers his hotel guests for expecting too much from him, like sunny weather and decent food. He faultypowers his wife Sybil, his little nest of vipers, for his cynical world view, due to his prison camp of a marriage (she being the warden, of course and he the lifer). And mainly he faultypowers Manuel, his dogsbody, on everything and anything else that clouds his day, just because Manuel is from Barcelona and can never understand enough English to know he is to blame. In his own mind, nothing is ever Basil's fault. Luckily he has Sybil to constantly remind him that he is wrong about that, too!
