The Conservative Redefinition Dictionary Project is an initiative by various Conservapedia editors to rewrite the English dictionary in an attempt to get rid of what it is convinced are "liberal redefinitions"[1] in the actual dictionaries. As you can probably tell, this is, without a doubt, the best to come out of Conservapedia in quite a while.
