On the Real-Ish

Thanks to Stephen Colbert, we now have a word called "truthiness", which perfectly describes a statement that appears true, but is not.

Inspired by Ron Suskind's 2004 article wherein the Bush Administration official scornfully referred to Americans as living in the "reality-based community", I believe it is long past time for us to have another word for something that appears real, but is not. For me, that word would be "real-ish".

Think about it. It could describe so many things.

Reality television? Real-ish. Candidate debates on the teevee? Real-ish. Mitt Romney? Real-ish.
