Think I coined this the other day when discussing current politics. No hits on Google. What'y'all think?

(this is a word post, not political)

Then it would be interesting to see this word placed in a non social-political context.

Cynicalized is out there. It doesn't feel a single word to me--it's 2 concepts being mashed together. If I saw it in an article, I'd think of bopping the editor on the head for letting the author get away with such mashing.
