Americagasm or Amerigasm (America + orgasm)

An “Americagam” or “Amerigasm” (America + orgasm) is an excessive display of American patriotism. “Amerigasm” has been cited in print since at least October 2006 amd “Americagasm” has been cited in print since at least July 2008.

The term “Americagasm” was popularized by Comedy Central comedian Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show in 2010 and 2011. Stewart referred to (in his opinion) the excessive patriotism of Republicans.

Finally, once the anthem had been sung and the introductions said and the “Americagasm” was on its way, where every Republican got together to “deliver a beatdown to this one other Republican.”
