and was totally unimpressed. She described him as "Smarmy".

(Pardon me for just a moment while I wipe a tear from my eye. "The acorn doesn't fall far from the tree", as they say. Or "The turd doesn't fall far from the bird", if you prefer.)

I think I first recall seeing it used when I read The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. I don't know if it is/was a word before that. I take it to mean kind of "used car salesman/greasy, disreputable uncle"-ish.

smarmy is used to describe the following personality traits: a smartass, know it all, superier to you personality. At home i most often hear it used to describe attitude, ie 'he had a smamry attitude"

when i rolled my eyes at my mother (earning myself a backhand most often) i was refered to as acting "smarmy"

Pretty much. Think of a British guy lecturing you on grammer and pronounciation in the middle of a conversation. No offense to our smarmy Brits.

No, it's not Northern. Websters calls it "marked by a smug, ingratiating, or false earnestness."

That's my understanding.

Basically, it's when someone acts like they care about something, but seems to carry about a sign saying "I do this for everyone and I really don't give a ____."

Think used car salesmen. Smarmy means oozing the kind of false friendliness that barely hides the fact that the person is trying to con you out of something.

She said that guests had to pay for food and booze ("You'd think Teresa could afford to throw a birthday party.")

Kerry kept taking cheap shots at Bush, and came across as bitter and vindictive. She also thought he had an insincere aura about him.

She got the impression that Teresa was clueless about the important issues.

The guests had to pay for food and booze?? How many guests were there? Sounds like Kerry is smarmy and friggin cheap. By the way, congrats to your daughter: she seems to be both observant and an excellent judge of character.

I never met the guy and don't run in his type of social circle( I'm just a serf to "The Man"). But that is how he came across to me during the Presidential race. Just blowing enough smoke up our ass to get the "little mans" vote.

President Bush reminds me of a rich Texas frat boy who was given everything all his life and never had to really try because he could always go back to mommy and daddy.

Where there is money, there are good looking women on the hunt. Alexandra Kerry likely has some FINE friends, and she's not so bad herself. You pie faced girl fans can have Jenna Bush.

Rodent,

When I first read your thread title, I thought, damn, It breaks a fathers heart to have to
disown their child. I'm glad that's not the case

Job well done.
