One who sifts through historical records with the intent of discovering information on past actions or statements by persons or entities alive, dead, active or defunct - the relevance of which has long since passed - for the express purpose of alerting the public to the "resurfaced" material in order to take a moral stance and/or instill outrage.
By dredging-up a long-forgotten, 48 year old interview of John Wayne - who died in 1979 - the outrage archaeologist had rediscovered statements far more controversial in the present than they had been in the past, thus creating a new moral outrage over a functional irrelevancy.

Nov 27 Word of the Day
A stupid person; it refers to the lack of surface area on an individual's brain. The general thought is that the more surface area (wrinkles, creases, etc.) a brain has, the smarter the person is. Conversely, a person with a smooth brain (no wrinkles) has less surface area and would therefore be stupid.
That fucking smooth brain put his shirt on backwards again...

That smooth brain is dumber than a pile of shit.
