Re: Propaganda -> Proper gander

The favorite is illuminating. Your citations are convincing. I looked for this one a while back, without separating it into two words, and so I was not convinced of its eggcornitude, but now I’m a believer. For what it’s worth, here are my two hits for the fused goose:

there was a law made a few years ago that will stop you from being sacked because of your political or religious beliefs,and if you look into the web more you will find most of the propergander against the bnp party was payed for by the labour party.

Dont listen to your propergander about how great the EU is … The Greeks have lived on Cyprus for 3500 years. The Turks only 400 years.
Response: 3500 years where did you get bit a propergander. 3500 years ago the Greeks where only small city states they where no where near Cyprus. you are full of sh*t propergander.
