Pronunciation: ee-DEN-ee-OL-uh-jizt

Sentence: At his inauguration ceremony the new president, an ardent edeneologist, promised "...to beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks.." However, by the time the spin doctors and political correctionists took control of his speech-making and letter writing, he was not allowed not use the word "beat" : it was far too violent; furthermore, "pruning" could be misinterpreted, and use against him by his opponents, to claim government cutbacks were about to be made, and any mention of "shares", in a time of a "R" , was an absolute no-no. Sensible people agreed wholeheartedly that it was time for him to turn to the verbotomists and verbotomy for help.

Etymology: Blend of EDEN;a state of perfect happiness or bliss. & NEOLOGIST: a maker of new words.

Captures the 'spin doctoring' of the politicians promising to create a new paradise. Excellent word!

I think verbotomists are a new breed of spin doctor
