Politiho (politico + ho/whore)

A “politico” (cited in English print since at least the 1600s) is a politician, or someone who works for a politician or holds strong political views. Politico.com (founded in 2007) is a website and news service that reports political news.

The derogatory slang name “politiho” (politico + ho/whore) has been cited in print since at least 2004. Politico has been dubbed “Politiho” since at least 2008.

Politico has also been nicknamed “Republico” (cited in print since at least 2007) by those who believe that Politico has a favorable conservative/Republican bias. Another Politico nickname is “Pervertico”—coined by conservative radio talk show host Mark Levin, who believes that Politico is too liberal.


Wikipedia: Politico
Politico is an American political journalism organization based in Arlington, Virginia, that distributes its content via television, the Internet, newspaper, and radio. Its coverage of Washington, D.C., includes the U.S. Congress, lobbying, media and the Presidency. It was a sponsor of the 2008 Republican Presidential candidates debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on May 3, 2007, the 2008 Democratic Presidential candidates debate at the Kodak Theater on January 31, 2008, and the 2012 Republican Presidential candidates debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on September 7, 2011.

John F. Harris and Jim VandeHei left The Washington Post to become Politico‘s editor-in-chief and executive editor, respectively, launching the newspaper on January 23, 2007. Frederick J. Ryan Jr., former assistant to President Ronald Reagan, is president and chief executive officer.

Hey POLITIHO, why don’t you report that Palin has been cleared of all ethics charges brought against her since ‘08? You were sure quick on the trigger when she was accused.

Politiho Caught Plagiarizing
Home - by BigFurHat - October 15, 2011 - 09:30
A political reporter from Politico was caught plagiarizing in at least 7 of her articles, lifting entire passages without attribution. Politico fired her but threw out a word that has made me sick to my stomach ever since the likes of Politiho and other left-wing rags ran defense, in orchestrated unison, for Sandy Burglar. They said Kendra Marr got “sloppy.”

Obama P.R. site Politico, which fixated endlessly on Sarah Palin’s wardrobe, ignores FLOTUS’ over-the-top clothing, jewelry and meals
The news equivalent of Media Matters, sometimes referred to as Politico, has a curious double-standard when it comes to public figures involved in politics.
