The question is this:

Did Colin Powell know what he was saying, concerning his resignation, when he said that he and the president "had frank and fulsome discussions about it?"

fulsome \FUL-sum\, adjective:
Offending or disgusting by overfullness, excess, or grossness; cloying; insincere or excessively lavish; esp., offensive from excess of praise

Or, since Bush and his henchpersons love to use codes such as "strict constructionist" and "Dredd Scott," did Powell decide to use a word that would bring a smile to the literate folk in America, and pass right over the heads of the morally and verbally dyslexic perps of the administration?
