look up any word, like eiffel tower:
 
5.
1. Ideological extremist from either side of the political spectrum who unquestioningly repeats any and all propaganda and/or conspiracy theories propagated by their side of the political spectrum, no matter how unlikely.

2. An eccentric driven by religious fervor to take on unusual or irrational social or political opinions without care that other members of society consider them off balance. The extremism of these people's faith is proof to them that they are right.

3. A person who was unfortunate in the allotment of his or her genetics, causing his or her ears to be abnormally large and protruding. Originating in Australia where it is rarely used derogatively it became an insult when the word migrated to America

5. A fan of the political drama television programme The West Wing

6. A peice of metal that can be easily turned with the fingers used to anchor screws into wood or other material
1. Ritchie: Comrades! The Neo-conservative administration we live under are simply distracting us with their tyranny while they breed an army of wild YETIS in an attempt to enslave us all in work camps which they are at this very moment building in Montana!
Guy: Sorry lady, if i believed every wing nut like you I'd be locked in my panic room by now

2. Chris: Every morning my next door neighbour goes outside naked and dances like a chicken in the street while preaching to the world that Satan has finally triumphed over God and it is our job as a society to decapitate all political and social leaders.
Sam: Doesn't he care that he gets arrested every day?
Chris: No, He's a total wing nut.

Chelsea: Like, I know, he's like a total wing nut!

Gabby: Fucking wing nuts

5. Sarah: Hey, I'm home alone Kelly's a total wing nut and so she's neglecting me for a big West Wing marathon. We should go out.
Samantha: Sure, where?

6. Gina: AGH! If I can't find the wing nut that goes on the end of this screw, the screw will fall out and the entire impenetrable fortress will collapse, killing us all!

9.
A name given to a person who has ears that stick out the side (at a greater angle than is usual) like little wings on their head. Sort of reminiscent of those little nuts that are easy to screw because of their wing-like attatchments, also called "wing nuts".

This is how it is used by some people in New Zealand anyway.

An eccentric who is usually driven by religious fever. They will take irrational social or political positions and not care that people will think that they are off balance. Being extreme somehow substantiates their faith.
