colleagueism
 n.— «I heard a cogent explanation on a national talk show about why no one else on the 9-11 Commission ever challenged the obvious conflict of interest of a former Democrat Assistant Attorney General participating in the investigation of herself. The Republican weenies on that Commission didn’t want to embarrass a colleague. The speaker invented a great new word—colleagueism.» —“Colleagueism, a new governmental disorder” by Emil Franzi Explorer (Tucson, Ariz.) Aug. 17, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
