Fake outrage, usually generated as a way of trying to create a controversy for the purpose of political smearing. Often the main weapon of right-wing bloggers who don't use threats to achieve their goals. Usually involves claims of racism or making huge deals out of small details such as lapel pins.

etymology: faux (French word meaning fake) + outrage (furor or indignation)
"People are talking bad about Sarah Palin! It's obvious sexism! Oh, those horrible hypocritical libs!!"
"Can the fauxtrage. She said something stupid, and people are calling her on it. Seriously, STFU."
