Maddenization

A word that tonight returned 6 non-identical hits on Google now has official status.

In refering to the atmosphere of the Chamber of the House of Representatives, in tonight's State of the Union address, Brian Williams, anchor of NBC Nightly News, said the following:

"Well, you [Chris Matthews] saw what happened in the Chamber. Tim [Russert] and I were sitting here watching, and in the kind of Maddenization of television, you could have used a telestrator to draw a line right down the middle of that Chamber. The group sitting, standing; silent, cheering, and then the applause, the standing ovation that was sarcastic, it really is a divide not seen in a good long time."

Google it - I'd be surprised if there aren't a lot of comments on this in the next few days. The crazy part is that even if you had never heard the word Maddenization before, like myself, you probably knew exactly what he meant!

Madden did go over-board when that thing first came out. One second you'd be watching the game, and the next, your TV was covered with a bunch yellow squiggly lines.
