What’s a snollygoster?

To remind those of you who may recall, a snollygoster, by 19th century definition, is a “fellow who wants office regardless of party, platform or principles, and who, whenever he wins, gets there by the sheer force of monumental talknophical assumacy.”

As Victor Hanson says in the April 7 issue, some snollygosters can cut right through the Gordian Knot.
