The build-up of gunk consisting of grease and crumbs that forms in that quarter-inch space between your stove and the counter.
I had a productive day. I cleaned the entire kitchen--I even scraped the palin off!

1. Malapropism, non-sensical verbiage, non-sequitor or other illogical, stream of concious meanderings uttered by Sarah Palin.

2. A form of homespun, Midwestern demagoguery and fear mongering comprised of a stream of logically unrelated and unsupported talking points uttered by an attractive woman with nice cans and a presumably fine ass intended to engender loyalty among those inspired by demagoguery, non-sequitors, a great smile, nice tits and a presumably fine ass.
See, e.g., Palin interview with Couric as parodied on SNL.

A Palinism is contained in the following thread: "The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's 'death panel' so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil." –-Sarah Palin, in a message posted on Facebook about Obama's health care plan, Aug. 12, 2009

1. Pejorative term that refers to an incompetent, impractical, irrelevant or incapable person who has been appointed to a position of great importance.

2. A person who holds authority disproportionate to his or her requisite ethics and qualifications. Derived from John McCain's controversial 2008 Vice Presidential pick, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
John was recently made principal, but everybody thinks he's a Palin who can't do the job.

My new boss is such a Palin - he took my deserved place because the CEO is his personal friend.

1) An agressive, yet dim witted, mammal which reacts with uninformed vitriol to incite other palins to attack.

2) A dwindling, but not quite extinct, hateful and fearful mindset usually found in uneducated rednecks and goatropers in the Southeast and Southwest USA.
Watch out, those palins over there, while retarded are easily provoked.

Watch out Daryl and Evelyn are holding signs with racial slurs. I thing they've got the palin.

A mistake of colossal proportions.
McCain really pulled a Palin with his VP pick.

1) n. anything woefully underqualified for a given task
2) v. to select without regard for consequences; to use folksy language but not actually say anything, often used when speaker does not know what they are talking about
1) I can't believe they promoted that palin instead of me. He can barely pronounce his own name!

If you want to kill a moose, a BB gun is a real palin.

2) They definitely palined that car. It doesn't even have an engine, much less a driver's seat.

Steve: Hey man, did you...?
Bob: You betcha. *Wink* Doggoneit, I sure have a history of...
Steve: Shut up and listen to the question! I don't want to hear your palining.
