    It is a common variant of weasel-like, so I would say it is a word.  You can find it in dictionaries, which is the usual way that we decide if a word is an actual word.  And given that dictionaries supposedly only include words that get used, and weaselish is used, I would have accepted it as a word even if dictionaries had not.  The spellchecker here though does not recognize it as a word.  It is not a very reliable word-determining device, this YA spellcheck.

    Not sure but I once had a collegue who was known throughout the company as WC.

    W was for "weasely". C does NOT stand for "chap".

    I see no reason to deny it, whether it's in a dictionary or not. We all understand what it means, and it's formed in a standard way from a noun and a common adjectival suffix.

    Everyone would know what you were saying. So when that happens, I would go with it. Jus' sayin'. If you ever listen to intellectuals; Academia, they make up words frequently enough. It can be done well.

    If you're referring to Adam Schiff, yes.
