ben•der•ism

For those of you who personally know Forest City Ratner Executive VP Bruce Bender, the public recognition of the "Benderism" will probably come as no surprise.

But for the uninitiated, a Benderism is a sentence or phrase that uses too many words to say something unbelievably boneheaded and/or impolitic.

Yesterday's Benderism prompted several readers to laugh their glasses off and beg for more.

As luck would have it, today's Brooklyn Downtown Star article on last week's press conference by Nik Kovac recorded yet another Benderism [Bender is on some kind of roll]:

"What you don't see, is all the hours, all the meetings, all the cross-country trips we take trying to figure out what's best for Brooklyn."
