2010 Word of the Year

What Should 2010's Word of the Year Be?

From the Jersey Shore-derived "guido" to the World Cup-inspired "vuvuzela," suggestions have been rolling in for what 2010's word of the year should be. Urban Dictionary suggests the not-so-tasteful "gate rape" for the TSA's new stringent airport checks, New Oxford American Dictionary named the Sarah Palin-coined "refudiate" 2010's word, and the Global Language Monitor chose "spillcam," after the live feed that recorded the Gulf oil spill.

Whether one of these, or one of your own, what do you think the word of the year should be?
