Political Pundits

Being a political pundit must be a great job. That has to be the case with being able to provide opinion, mainly critical, without having the responsibility to do any better—especially when it’s done on national television or in a syndicated newspaper column.

Even though it might be clear that I don’t have the most respect for the position, I do believe that we should say and spell the word correctly. It’s pundit, not pundint, no matter how many times you hear the one with the extra n. I’ve heard politicians say it (including now-former President George W. Bush and one-time VP candidate Sarah Palin), as well as some of the pundits, themselves.
