Sentence: At his inauguration ceremony the new president, an ardent edeneologist, promised " 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
