I have watched many CBS, NBC, CNN, and even Fox News guests , both Democrat and Republican, use the term "Idiology" as though they are indirectly calling their opposition an idiot. Though the diffrence being in Ideaology they would be critisizing ideas, not childishly critisizing by calling them idiots? So what are your thoughts? Does this even exist?

I'm tired of interpolating facts from the double-speak of major media commentators. Asking both sides, or all sides, to stop the spin, might be too much. This is a good question. I wish I had a good answer.

I think "idiology" is an acceptable pronunciation of the word Ideology. I have heard it used as such many times before - long before our current obsession with the word. Now whether it's being used intentionally that way these days, I can't say, I guess I wouldn't be surprised.
