Maybe it's not new to anyone else, but Josh Marshall thought he had
coined a word.

 From TalkingPointsMemo:

Apparently, Josh Marshall liked his own coinage, because he came back
with a second post:

> I noted below the newest development in the Nikki Haley/*man-izer* saga.

Of course, this is NOT new coinage--although, who can blame Josh for
never having heard it. UD has an entry (actually, 7 of them) and there
227K raw ghits. Not exactly chump change.

Sephora sells a product named Mary-Lou Manizer. [http://bit.ly/cFw3Zv]

Some references appear to be to particularly promiscuous gay men.
