noun: A deceptive move, especially in fencing or boxing.
verb: To make a deceptive movement.
(“Feint” was Friday’s word from Wordsmith.org.)

(Sorry, I can’t help myself.) “To feint is not for the faint of heart,” the fencing instructor joked.

(It’s election season. It’s also hunting season. Coincidence?) A political debate is not so much about truth as it is about the feint – to trap and annihilate one’s opponent by crafty, subtle speech.
