New exclusive pronoun in English?

I ran into Monica, Team Verb contributor and morphologist, on campus today while carrying a copy of the new Onion. She noticed this headline:
Obama Modifies 'Yes We Can' Message To Exclude Area Loser
'Yes We Can, Except Nate Walsh,' Obama Says
She suggests that this is a new kind of exclusive pronoun. Sure.
