    Kommentar
    This came up today. I think both 'spout (sth.)' and 'spout off (about sth.)' are pretty interchangeable with 'shoot one's mouth off (about sth.),' which is already in LEO. (Though the entry with 'big fat mouth' was probably a mistake, since it lacks the word 'off,' and I thought people had voted against 'seine Meinung lauthals verkünden' as being the wrong diction level.)

    Other suggestions that have come up previously for some of these include

    sich das Maul zerreißen
    aufschneiden

    I think 'spout off' can also sometimes have an element of bragging, so 'aufschneiden' is probably also okay.

    To me 'spout off about sth.' can also often have an element of complaining or criticizing, ventilating, giving voice to one's dissatisfaction.

    The only one I think doesn't really apply here is 'ausplaudern'; it's not really so much about telling a secret, to my ears.

    Hopefully the German speakers can agree on the best choices for the German side. I'm not sure about the best preposition to go with 'about sth.'; maybe 'über etw.' or 'zu etw.'?

    Unterstuetzung fuer die meisten, mit Ausnahme von "klugscheissen".

    "Klugscheissen", was auch noch in LEO fehlt, ist fuer mich eher in Richtung "being a wise ass". Also mehr eine uebertriebene, aufdringliche, pendatische Belehrung. Waehrend "to spout off" fuer mich eher nach "hat keine Ahnung, aber meldet sich" klingt.

    Kommentar
    Meiner Meinung nach kann 'klugscheißen' durchaus auch passen, da für mich ein Klugscheißer einer ist, der als einziger der Meinung ist, daß er was Kluges zu einer Sache beizutragen hat.

    'Aufschneiden' ist für mich ein Synonym zu 'angeben' und paßt meiner Ansicht nach hier nicht.

    Wenn ich vom Beispielssatz ausgehe, passen die bislang aufgeführten Möglichkeiten eigentlich nicht so gut. Ich würde ihn so übersetzen:
    (...) der seine politischen Ansichten (ungefragt) herausposaunt.

    Eine weiter Möglichkeit könnte 'seinen Senf dazu geben' sein. Da in den englischen Definitionen immer enthalten ist, daß es längliche Äußerungen sind, könnte man ein 'lang und breit' einfügen. 'Sich auslassen über' wäre dann auch noch eine Möglichkeit.

    Okay, I can see it would be helpful for the German speakers to have more concrete examples. Sorry I didn't take the time to do that the first time.

    I may not have gotten all the above into exactly the right categories, but hopefully it will help at least to give an idea of the range of meaning.
