grease man
 n.— «Omaha Republicans have “too long been involved in meaningless turf battles,” King said. Christie “can lead us in unity,” he said. “It’s time to stop pointing fingers,” King said. “It’s time to put away petty disagreement.” King compared the party to a squeaky wheel that needed to be greased. “Bob Christie is our grease man,” King said.» —“Douglas County Party Seeks Unity Republicans Pick Teacher to End Feuding” by C. David Kotok Omaha World-Herald Jan. 25, 1989. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
