The phony outrage that is used to drum up support for or against a particular stance/view/statement. Usually used on both sides of the political spectrum, but mostly by the conservatives. A very cheap attempt at scoring political points.
Sarah Palin sure is over-working the phoutrage about David Letterman's jokes.
The phoutrage from the McCain/Palin camp about the "lipstick on a pig" comment is really laughable.
