"Obviously this means to hit someone upside the head with a beer stein in a bar fight.
Mug: drinking vessel with a handle 
Wump: variant of whomp, or hit"
 This is a very plausible definition. All the daffynitions made me laugh, but there can be only one winner, so I canīt be a mugwump and not choose sides.

The dictionary result for mugwump is

/ˈməɡˌwəmp/
noun
NORTH AMERICAN
  1. a person who remains aloof or independent, especially from party politics. (google)
 A mugwump is someone, especially in politics, who sits on the fence. Mugwumps donīt commit to one side or the other. (vocabulary.com)
 
ThANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED! Over to you, MoodyMoody !
