The 2004 Most Popular Phrase that colored our lexicon, as voted by the Linguistic Society of America was Red Stare, Blue State & Purple State.
I was more a fan of the runners-up in other categories:
Lawn mullet: A lawn that is neatly mowed in the front but unmowed in the back
Hillbilly armor: Describing U.S. troops scavenging for material to protect their vehicles
Nerdvana: A term for collaborative geekiness
Pajamahadeen: Bloggers who challenge and fact-check traditional media
