Pundits

Much as I might sneer at the lousy capabilities of most pundits to predict, prognosticate, or otherwise prophesy about any topic, I at least think people on TV ought to pronounce the term correctly. But practically everyone I heard on CNN and elsewhere last night (and for most of the past couple of months) has seemed to Palinize the term, to "pun-dints."

There's no "n."

UPDATE I: Apparently, I've gotten the newfangled spelling wrong.

I think McCain lost because he listen to the far right pundents on cable.

UPDATE II: It's not in the dictionary, but apparently there are thousands of pages out there with variations on "pundint" and "pundent."
