nutpicking
 n.— «I held a contest to create a name for the moronic practice of trawling through open comment threads in order to find a few wackjobs who can be held up as evidence that liberals are nuts. It’s both lazy and self-refuting, since if the best evidence of wackjobism you can find is a few anonymous nutballs commenting on a blog, then the particular brand of wackjobism you’re complaining about must not be very widespread after all.…Nutpicking…I see that K Lo is busily nutpicking away over at The Corner.» —“Political Animal: August 11, 2006″ by Kevin Drum Washington Monthly Aug. 11, 2006.
