Inappropriate Name Calling: We Can Do Better Than This!Submitted by The Rascible Ch... on Fri, 08/31/2012 - 20:37
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:
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.
