Word Definition—Bien-pensant


For John, BLUFLike Bill O'Rielly, a new word every day.  Or not.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



From time to time I will use the term Bien-pensant, or make it one of my tags (or labels).  It is meant to be sarcasm.
noun (bien-pensant)

a right-thinking or orthodox person.

ORIGIN
French, from bien ‘well’ + pensant, present participle of penser ‘think.’

On the other hand, I have to admit that my late friend, Bill Tuel, was correct to say that negative humor is bad.  So, I will work to minimize my use, but the election season is certainly a condition that invites me to sin in this way and sin freely and happily.
