The "Stuck On Stupid" Dictionary #28

In the spirit of bi-partisanship shown on "Date Night" during the State of the Union message last night, we have somehow managed to cajole another entry out of the staff for this lexicographical effort.

Now for those of you who have somehow managed to miss previous postings in this area (shame on you, now go back and read all of the postings under the title of dictionary), the SOS dictionary is a reference guide to terms which nominally mean something to the rest of the English speaking world, but appear to mean something entirely different to those us understand the vernacular of Toledo and Northwest Ohio.

1. An agreement reached between two sides of opposing principles.
2. To make a shameful concession (as in compromising one's principles).
3. To grudgingly admit to no longer having sufficient control of a situation; forcing one (albeit unwillingly) to at least listen to, if not deal with, other points of view.
