The Onion gets it right again. : ) In some other pit thread I may press the argument that Mr. Bush should step down, either by resigning or by failing to run for reelection, because he has lost the support to lead effectively. Like Nixon, who stated his resignation was due to his inability to govern while always a suspect, Junior should recognize he’s lost the support half of his constituency, his supreme court, half his congress, the ROTW, and most damning, Inigo Montoya. But that’s not what this thread is about.
It’s about presidential niknames. I can only remember a few that had any currency. Can you fill in the blanks with nicknames that were mainstream (but of course, never hit the official media)?
I don’t remember back any further than Nixon, but what history has logged so far:
Nixon: Tricky Dick
George Bush: ?
Clinton: Bubba/Slick Willie
George W. Bush: Duhbyah/Shrub
And the bonus question: should he be elected what the hell do we call John Kerry?
