imbroglio – Pickens’s plan

Posted on July 25, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

While at the Atlas Economic Research Foundation conference in Ontario this past weekend, keynote speaker, the Discovery Institute’s George Gilder, told what he thought of Pickens’s plan, and he . . . well, was not impressed.
The word he used was “imbroglio.”
I had to look it up:  Pronounced – im·bro·glio 
1: a confused mass
2 a: an intricate or complicated situation (as in a drama or novel)
b: an acutely painful or embarrassing misunderstanding
c: a violently confused or bitterly complicated altercation : embroilment
d: scandal 3a <survived the political imbroglio>
Yikes! What three syllable word did he use on Gore’s plan?
