For June 20th, the word was oil.

  1. Thanks for the link to Capitol Words! Also we now have a widget available if anyone wants Capitol Words on their website: http://capitolwords.org/about/.

    Thanks again.

  2. Hi Nisha:

    I did try the widget, but it appears to not work on WordPress.com blogs. If you have any ideas on how to get it to work without going to wordpress.org, please let me know.

  3. The problem seems to be that on certain WordPress blogs if you don’t have access to your sidebar then you can’t install a widget because it isn’t a WordPress widget. Only WordPress approved widgets can be put on the sidebar of your blog and unfortunately ours is not approved. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

  4. Greetings,

    Thought you would like to know that we’ve just launched a brand new version of Capitol Words.

    Here is the link: http://capitolwords.org/.

    Capitol Words now has more information you can see what the most said words are over the period of a year, the whole Congress, month, and even day.You can also see what words a lawmaker is saying the most. These improvements give users an at-glance view and better understanding of what is happening in the halls of Congress.

    I hope you find the new Capitol Words more useful. Feel free to contact me.

    Thanks for your support,
