And now Professor Drukman's vocabulary lesson for the day:

venal \'ve-n-*l\ \*l-e-\ aj [L venalis, fr. venum (acc.) sale; akin to Gk 
   o-neisthai t]o buy,Skt vasna price : capable of being bought or obtained 
   for money or other valuable consideration : PURCHASABLE; esp : mercenary 
   corrupt - ve.nal.ly av

ve.nal.i.ty \vi-'nal-*t-e-\ n : the quality or state of being venal esp. as 
   open to improper influence or bribery

A very very nasty insult, as you can see!
