2006 word of the year...

truthiness (noun)
1 : "truth that comes from the gut, not books" (Stephen Colbert, Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report," October 2005)
2 : "the quality of preferring concepts or facts one wishes to be true, rather than concepts or facts known to be true" (American Dialect Society, January 2006) Beating out such contenders as google, war, and corruption by an overwhelming majority of five to one, truthiness clearly speaks to the spirit of our age.
If you use it three times, it becomes a new word.
