My best friend in High School and I made up this word back around 1972 or 1973. Our definition then was someone who expounded at great lengths, not knowing when to shut up.
A Bloviator to us was a person who when you asked him what time it was, he told you how to build a watch.
The preacher got wound up in the sermon last Sunday. He began to bloviate and went past the usual time to get out of church.
