It’s ‘Good riddance’ to the unwashed pols


Wow,  use a common idiom, maybe to myself, and we get tongue-tied pols tripping all over their tongues and using “good riddens’ instead.  No such word as ‘riddens’ there is ‘ridden’ like guilt-ridden or bed-ridden but it does not substitute for the real word ‘riddance’ which means glad something is gone and done.  Let’s name names here; Steele and Swarzanegger, sp, who both used, recently, ‘riddens’ as in ‘good riddens’ instead of ‘riddance.’  Heloise is the first person even use that idiom as far as I can tell anyway.
