Meme 'o the day: Nutpicking

Something that is very gratifying about the blogs is how quickly stuff happens. It was just yesterday that Kevin Drum, working on the suggestion of a reader, saw a semantic gap that was crying out to be filled. Before you know it, a contest was held and we now have a winner:

Nutpicking (v.) -- the moronic practice of trawling open comment threads to cherrypick nutball views, which can then be disingenuously held up as representative of your opponent's "side."

Example sentences:

I see that K Lo is busily nutpicking away over at The Corner.

Lanny Davis is now the official King of the Nutpickers.

Man, the nutpickers were out in force after Tuesday's Ned Lamont victory.
