A new usage that I love.
Ted at Crooked Timber has a good item about "dumpster diving", meaning "to react to a political event by going to a site where random people post, digging up the stupidest thing you can find, and trumpeting it as the position of The Other Side."

Quote I love: "The world is full to the gills with stupid people who say awful things on the Internet. Pointing this out doesn’t constitute a political argument."

I'd add to that, "In any argument, there will be people on your side whom you will wish were on the other side."
