The Art of the Political Nickname (MJ)

I started reading this site many years ago for a few different reasons, but chief among them was that most political news is boring. It doesn't matter what team you're on either. The left and right are predictable in their analysis and moral preening.

Everything is breaking news, followed by an outrage, then some banal pap spouted by either a totally serious you guys, 'expert' that gets an arm fracture while shooting a 12 gauge automatic pistol modified to shoot silenced full metal jacket assault bazooka rounds, or you get John Bolton.

Love me some Bolton. He's a national treasure and the rest of those upper lip flaunting losers can go eat a bag of dicks. They're all racing to reach peak cliche.

Which brings me to my second reason for reading and loving this blog: it's funny.

Nothing else out there can provide this level of humor by the author and commenters while still providing thoughtful discussion on the day's newsworthy events.

You guys kill me.

With that in mind, I'd like to share one of the funniest rips on a politician that I've read in a really long time. When I saw it I giggled like a wee little school girl. You may have heard the nickname before but it's new to me and I haven't really seen it used over here.

I present to you...Chelsea Clinton...AKA...
