Is "yeeesh" a word?
Not, according to Dictionary.com or the Merriam-Webster online dictionary.
Yet, the Asbury Park Press used the "word" in reference to Governor Corzine in an editorial today.
Maybe they meant "Sheesh" which is a euphemistic way to say poo poo or use the Lord's name in vain as an expression of annoyance, surprise or disgust. That would fit with the tenor of their editorial.
The APP was editorialising about this appearance Corzine made on MSNBC's Morning Joe yesterday.
If you don't have six minutes to watch the video, Corzine said that his service as a sergeant in the Marine Corp will trump his reputation as a Wall Street insider in the minds of New Jersey voters. Funny, I don't recall that part of his resume from the 2005 campaign or any mention of it until just recently.
Corzine also said that New Jersey's terrible economy is not his fault or the fault of his policies. Didn't he say last week that his actions and policies prevented an economic melt down? Doesn't he have a web ad that says he saw the recession coming and took action to stop it?
He said, "My line is, Why would you want to give the keys to the State House to the people who made a mess of the White House?"
