Because Token was already a character on South Park.

Karl Rove = Turb Blossom.

and with that, I'm going to go jump off a bridge.

TURD blossom.
though I suppose turb would also work, if it were a worb.

You know, the first time I heard this, I thought it was a joke.

I thought the same thing when I heard about his brother's magical Chang Warrior.

It's not a joke, these people are really insane.

I think being a nickname assigner is one of the most annoying traits a human can possess. It reeks of condescending frat jerk.

He also has the same nickname for Alberto Gonzolase and Fred Upton.
posted by delmoi at 7:17 AM on September 29, 2005


delmoi: My guess is that Gonzalez is Fredo (like Michael Corleone's brother) and Upton is "Fred-Oh."

Where's fellow Texanite, Tom DeLay? May I suggest Millstone?

Thanks for this--I'd never seen this site before.

I went to the home page and found a lot of really interesting info on a lot of people.

Damnit! I had that nickname first!

Something tells me that there's a wacky yet annoying story behind the name "Balloonfoot".

Why is Blair 4th on the list? Why is his nickname Landslide? Why would I care?

I say Albatros.

Where's Zell "I challenge you to a duel" Miller? I'd imagine his nickname would be something like Spittle and Fire.

I actually kind of liked this list, especially because I'm imagining Bush forgetting who he's talking to and just inventing a new nickname for them on the spot so he doesn't look like an ass again.

I love that he calls two different guys with the last name Jackson, Action Jackson.

To quote Pollomacho, I think Zell isn't included, "Because Token [is] already a character on South Park." !

13twelve Why is Blair 4th on the list?

Because its listed alphabetically.
posted by howling fantods at 10:09 AM on September 29, 2005


I wonder if he actually calls people by the nicknames or its just something he said one time.

I thought the funniest was Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein. Boxer is "Ali" and Feinstien is "Frazier."
posted by b_thinky at 10:20 AM on September 29, 2005


13twelve: because he won election by a landslide.
posted by bonaldi at 10:27 AM on September 29, 2005


Some of these are really funny to me, particularly "Ali" and "Frazier." Perfect nicknames for those two bulldogs.
posted by letitrain at 10:27 AM on September 29, 2005


The nicknames are pretty funny (rhyming "Jackson" with "Jackson", brilliant!) and some would make good comic book characters: "Congressman Kick-Ass", "The Adding Machine", and the crime fighting team of "Stretch" and "Super Stretch".

What I found oddest were the stat categories on the people's pages. For example, on the "Vote for Pedro" page, it lists the person's sexual orientation and "Level of Fame" ("niche" in this case)

First off.. I could give a rats ass what little georgie calls folks..

My guess is that he isn't smart enough to remember a name and doesn't have enough respect for people to use a correct name....

basically, what an idiot...oh, wait...a nickname for george...naw...just another adjective...

I suppose he's just lucky Bush didn't call him the Mighty Blue Salmon of Justice, or Mucal Invader.

Stretch is Dick Keil of Bloomberg, not Kyle. Just saying.

XQ: Thank you thank you thank you. This made my day.

Love the nicks for columnists: Maureen Dowd = Cobra; George Will = The Commissioner (is this because of Will's baseball interests?).

Two Pedros, a Pancho, a Fredo, a Pablo, a Freddo, a Big O, and El Grande Jorge. Sounds like an Taco Bell order.

I think being a nickname assigner is one of the most annoying traits a human can possess. It reeks of condescending frat jerk.

And when combined with knowing a little bit of Spanish, it's even worse.

So, conversely, where's the complete list of people's nicknames for George W. Bush?

glenwood:
"I think being a nickname assigner is one of..."

Scanning, I read "Assinger" and thought that du Byah had nicknamed someone by combining "Kissinger" with "Ass." It works on so many levels! To subtle I guess...

Ashley Smith = "Methie"
William Bennett = "Whitey Babykiller"

I'm surprised that no one's mentioned he calls his wife 'Bushie'. His wife.

"Bushie, you're doing a heckuva job."

"bullets" - how cool is that? I've no idea who she is (that's probably a bad thing), but great nickname.

For some reason, I originally read this as "The complete list of George Washington's nicknames for people".

Dammit, I really want to read that list.
