Hilary Rosen Runs For Cover
On Twitter, Hilary Rosen has announced she will not appear on Meet the Press this Sunday, though she had been scheduled to do so. “I deeply apologize again to work-in-home moms, Mrs Romney & the POTUS,” Rosen writes. “Not going on #MTP this weekend. I’m going to be a mom who stays home.”
If you look up the word “fulsome” in the dictionary, you will find something like this:
1. offensive to good taste, especially as being excessive; overdone or gross: fulsome praise that embarrassed her deeply; fulsome dcor.Ms. Rosen’s use of the term “fulsome” harks back to the word’s archaic meaning, listed as fifth above. In its modern sense, I think it is the perfect adjective for Ms. Rosen’s “apology.”
2. disgusting; sickening; repulsive: a table heaped with fulsome mounds of greasy foods.
3. excessively or insincerely lavish: fulsome admiration.
4. encompassing all aspects; comprehensive: a fulsome survey of the political situation in Central America.
5. abundant or copious.
