The Chron is having it's word of the year vote - options include: blog, insurgent, red state/blue state, and others. Follow the link to vote in their online poll or feel free to suggest your own in the comments section below.
I'd say red state/blue state, already leading in the vote, is a good choice. I'm partial to blog, also, but naturally biased.
This isn't quite a caption contest, but I think my creative readers will have some good nominees (clearly, the implied singular of "word" includes space for phrase).
