Today's Obamaism:

Monobamatic (mon-uh-boh-MAT-ik) adj. About or pertaining to Barack Obama only.

Example: While the forum was billed as a general discussion of politics in the era of Web 2.0, the conversation quickly became monobamatic.

Since Slate first launched its Encyclopedia Baracktannica in February, more than 800 readers have written in with their own Obamaisms, from "Barack Ness Monster" to "Post-Baracalyptic." The best of these entries, along with Slate's original Obama neologisms, are collected in a new book: Obamamania! The English Language, Barackafied, available June 24.

In conjunction with the publication of the book, we will be publishing a new Obamaism every morning and adding it to the Obamamania widget below, which you can add to your Facebook or MySpace profile or Web site.
