Yes, there is a new word we can add to the dictionary. It's called Palinism. It is defined as follows:

Definition: Palinism, the use of Governmental powers to eliminate those that disagrees with you; Repaying friends and family that have been instrumental in helping you to gain political office with treachery; Using political office to get even with anyone that has insulted you or a family member; Firing anyone who refuses to agree with your personal, non-constitutional views, (ie:book burning or censorship);

Demanding that everyone follow your personal ideals, such as a mandatory pregnancy being forced on women regardless of the cause; A vicious personality, Lavish spending of taxpayer's money on redecorating a Government office several times (ie:Woman's Prerogative to change her mind, over and over and over again), while at the same time ignoring the more important issues; A narrow-minded, mean-spirited individual occupying a Government Office. 
Someone who is "Snarky",  meaning rudely sarcastic or disrespectful, snide, snotty, contemptuous, irritable or short-tempered, snappish; critical in an annoying, sarcastic, grumpy, wisecracking, or cynical way. Snarky, derived from "snark," meaning "to nag" or "to find fault with," but is also related to "snort"  owing to the derisive snorting sound made by someone always finding fault.
Also, Self-Righteous, believing your religious beliefs are the only correct beliefs and everyone else must follow them or be Palinized.

Having an utter lack of humility; Presumptuousness; Having a lack of compassion for others, Casting blame onto others; Accepting credit for the works of others; a never ending quest for more and more political power; The missuse of political power against enemies, real or imagined.

We can all thank and credit Sarah Palin, Alaskan Governor for this new word as she is the personification of Palinism, and it's subform:Palinized
