adj. Describes someone elected or promoted to a position s/he is not truly qualified to hold and who quits before the full extent of her incompetence can be clearly established. A "half-term" office holder may also resign before the law, countless controversies, ethics investigations, etc. can catch up with her.
Question: "Since when did a half-term governor with little political experience and even less knowledge become an expert on nuclear power and foreign relations?"

Answer: "Since Fox News and the teabaggers proclaimed her their messiah."
