horseracism
 n.Note: This term has recently been credited by Jack Shafer as a coinage by Brian Montopoli in 2004, but Montopoli’s coinage came much later than the 1995 use cited here. It does seem likely to be the sort of word that is coined and recoined rather than transmitted from person to person. «I mention this not to bore you with Sunday-morning style political horseracism, but to alert you to the fact that the social climates in America will change severely by this time in 1997.» —“REVMAC: Social Climate Forecast” by Matthew Carey Usenet: alt.slack Feb. 17, 1995.
