So the most pressing question of the post US-election period, beyond “did adults seriously come up with the name ‘labradoodle’?” and “will Team Obama need to buy their own keyboards?” is clearly, “what is Sasha Obama’s Secret Service codename?”
President-elect Barack Obama: Renegade
Michelle Obama: Renaissance
Malia Obama: Radiance
Sasha Obama: Rosebud
Vice President-elect Joe Biden: Celtic
Jill Biden: Capri
President George W. Bush: Tumbler
First Lady Laura Bush: Tempo
Aside from Bush’s codename, which I assume means that someone has a sense of humour, these all sound like cars. Crappy, marketer-named cars.
“This fall, test-drive the 2009 Chrysler Capri and discover an automotive experience that demonstrates why no one wants to buy Chrysler. Act now before the recall!”
Also, as an aside, I love the names-that-start-with-the-same-letter bit and all, but seriously, you guys are positive everyone can hear the difference between “Radiance” and “Renaissance” over an earpiece, right? I ask because the sitcom viewer in me thinks this is going to end with someone getting fired by an enraged President Obama.
