Vocabulary Building III -- Politickally Carwrecked

Once again Serena and I are pleased to relinquish control of this site to Skunkfeathers. He has become the first guest contributor to these pages to have three consecutive posts featured here at Verbicidal Tendencies.

The last of three in the series. Yeah, I heard those sighs of relief.

At any rate, what had been a series of seven vocabulary builders for the paper back about 12 years or so ago, I condensed into three, so you're getting more than twice the verbiage value as heretofore. Or heretofive, six, or whatever your favored number.

You've outdone yourself!

I had so many favorites from this set that I had to settle on:

hallibut, impeccable, cornudopia and insider.

I may have to pull Vocab IV if that's the case; how can I outdo myself, low-achiever that I is?
