You forgot scandal-ridden

A while ago I chided Entertainment Weekly for referring to Sandra Bullock as "a hyphenate" while using slashes instead of hyphens in its description of her.

Today, Alex Frankel found this in The Weekly Standard: "The truth is that Tom DeLay is a special target because he is the first legislative power broker to be an authentic Red State conservative. He is an unhyphenated Reaganite: militantly pro-life and pro-values on social issues, a pro-growth tax cutter on economic issues, and an unapologetic, spread-American-values interventionist abroad."

Notes Alex: "Delay is unhyphenated with five hyphens."

In his defense, those hyphens are almost ten years old and he had no idea where they came from.
