Inappropriate Name Calling: We Can Do Better Than This!

Insults and name-calling are American political traditions as old as vote-rigging and stuffing ballot-boxes.

There is certainly no reason to expect this to end anytime soon here on Daily Paul, even considering that Dr. Paul himself reads these forums:
http://www.dailypaul.com/168224/guess-who-reads-the-daily-paul
as well as our wives, children, and 'newbies' who are merely seeking information and don't need to be exposed to x-rated nicknames.

The best names should sound like the words they are replacing, while also accurately describing recognizable traits of the person. Some examples might include

Reince 'Rancid Proboscis' Priebus - Chairman, RNC
Rancid: having a rank, unpleasant, stale smell or taste, as through decomposition
Proboscis: The slender, tubular feeding and sucking organ of certain invertebrates

Note how the words describe the individual perfectly, with an added bonus that invertebrates, like the RNC, are creatures with no backbone or supporting internal structure. Another example:

Mitt 'Ramen Noodle' Romney - Presidential hopeful
Mitt: Ridiculous already, no need to alter.
Ramen Noodle: A perfectly square food substitute which comes in a sanitary plastic wrapper and can be bought very cheaply.

Having no flavor of their own, ramen noodles can take on any other flavor desired by the addition of artificial flavoring. Also, ramen noodles look like brains but are actually mostly air. Finally, the best thing to do with ramen noodles is to throw them away and replace them with something more nutritious like pork rinds or cheese puffs.

John 'Nanu-Nanu' Sununu - GOP hack
Nanu-nanu: A phrase used by a stark raving lunatic and popularized by starker, even more raving lunatics.
John: Another name for a toilet.

Rick 'Santorum' Santorum:
Self-explanatory.

In conclusion,

Thanks for reading.

Thank you for a most amusing read.

You are indeed a font of creativity.

Thanks - these ideas float around in the air and I just inhale

deeply.

But on a serious note, in '08 I participated in a protest against the bankster bailout. One person wanted to wear her 'Buck Fush' tshirt. I said 'No! We wear our sunday best!' The group agreed and we were the best-dressed protesters that day.

The point was that we couldn't afford to look ridiculous, as our job was to expose government insanity. We were to take the high ground.

It's the same with this 'shutdown'. Jokes are fun but this is the time to take up leadership positions. As I saw scroll past on my friend's facebook page: 'Government shuts down - consult your nearest conspiracy theorist for further instructions.'

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

Interesting

Somebody should write about it: About why the government is shut down.

Write it with a hard edge that just slices, right through the fat, the mean, the bone, all the way to the Original Void.

I propose a topic: "Why The Government is Shut Down" to be addressed by the merry pranksters of the Daily Paul.

Slice it. Dice it. Then skillfully whisper it. Into their ears.

Can we do that?

Government Gets Lost In Its Own Eyes

Locked in starry-eyed embrace, the Congress and Senate fell into the murky searing place called true love, and have disappeared into the woods.

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

Hilarious!

Are you referring to me.

"x-rated nicknames"

Compared to what the other

Compared to what the other side has done, I dont think there is a problem with a bit of name calling confined to the site.

There is that one Prince Reibus, or maybe Rinsed Pen... no this is probaby not a good place to put that.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Actually...

Rick Santorum was, is, and will always be known as Frothy.

I don't play, I commission the league.

Petition for making 'Frothy' the one and only name

used for Santorum on the DP.

Bravo. Now you just made me feel guilty

Bravo. Now you just made me feel guilty of everything I wrote in anger thus far.

Fair enough. I'll go for even more harsh indirections in my sarcasms.

That'll be instead of giving them funny names... to them, CROOKS and THIEVES and TRAITORS and FOES to this country.

(Oops. Dang. Did it again...)

Ha ! :p

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.
