Subject: Do the ADS pundits know?

I don't know whether these things happen suddenly or whether they build
gradually until they reach a critical mass where I notice them. But when
did "pundit" become "pundent"?

The word has been tossed out a bit more than usual lately on television
news shows, and in virtually every iteration it has been pronounced with
that extra N slipped in.
