sampated
 v.— «The fact is that Powell was up against it early when he took the job at State. Vice President Dick Cheney’s staff second-guessed every element of foreign policy. In good Trini parlance, he was “sampated” from the outset. When he suggested that the US should resume talks that the Clinton Administration had initiated with North Korea, he was immediately contradicted by the White House.» —“Colin Powell soldiers on” by Basil A. Ince Trinidad & Tobago Express Noc. 27, 2004. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
