‘Obama’ Is The Hip, New Slang

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The presidential race is getting heated, and it seems “Obama” is the cool new word.

The Global Language Monitor – a California-based company that analyzes the latest trends in word usage around the world – claims that the word “Obama,” in its many variations, is the latest word to enter the English language.

Usage of the word, referring to Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama, include “Obamarama,” which refers to the entire Obama phenomenon.

“Obamanomics” is the word used to describe Obama’s master plan for the American economy.

“Obamamania” is what happens when Obama’s legions of political fans rally, scream, and faint for him, just like groupies would for a rockstar.

“Obamacize” and “Obamafy” are ways of making something more Obama-like.

The words “Obamamentum,” “ObamaNation,” Obamican,” and “Obamacam” are also creeping into the English language thanks to the Illinois Senator’s campaigning.
