dirty
 adj.— «The secret services create what’s called the “bubble,” a secure area where the candidate is. But once you’re in the bubble you can’t leave. The term for people outside it is “dirty,” meaning that you could have a weapon or someone could have given you something. Everyone who is in that stadium is clean, so you’re kind of limited to stay in the bubble, travelling around in this little sterile movement.» —“My America, Christopher Morris: the strange world of US political campaigns” by Ruby Russell Telegraph (United Kingdom) Sept. 27, 2008.
