Slew has been posting:
"a shoe in" means you have one foot in the door...he's a shoe in for the job...meaning he has a good chance of the getting the job.
"shoo in" is a racetrack term applied to a horse that is expected to win a race, because the race is fixed"
He got this from: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index...
He is quoting an anonymous post on yahoo answers in an attempt to counter Webster's, Cambridge University, Washington State University, Dictionary.com , and the book "Common Errors in English Usage".
There is no such word as shoe-in, but he has quoted the same thing across multiple threads. He will do and say anything to avoid being wrong (event if it is in his own head).

So you don't deny that you are using a made up word with a fake definition, AND the incorrect definition for shoo-in?
P.S. A few other posters have pointed out your spelling errors, so you are not one to talk about that.

Seems like you have lots of questions... I have no interest in arguing with a proven moron...Sorry "its" not worth my effort, to see you stupidly tell me what you "think" I wrote...
