Embolden

September 18, 2012

Has anyone ever used this word in a way that was not stupid? You most often come across it in a political context, in which the ones emboldened are enemies, usually foreign. These enemies are sitting around quite helplessly until someone apologizes for America or bows to a foreigner or says or does excessively undickish things of some sort, which suddenly galvanizes them into scary boldness of an existentially threatening nature.

I, for one, could really use some emboldenment, and if anyone out there cares to embolden me, I would be most grateful.
