I’m posting this one today for…  Well, let’s just say the definition is the reason.

faute de mieux (faute de mieux): / foht duh MYΠ/ (always italicized)

(1) for lack of or want for something better

[From French faute de mieux meaning “lack of better.”]

Usage: I hate it when people say they voted for Dubya faute de mieux.
