    Hi guys

    I read a headline recently:

    "Palin stinking up the joint: Platitudes about the economy and the collapse of Wall Street"

    I've seen this phrase many times around different contexts. What is the general meaning of the phrase "stink up the joint"?

    Thank you very much!

    "The joint" in this sense is "the place" and Palin's political performance is so bad (shitty) it creates a smell that fills the room up.
