    I guess you've noticed that I have zero respect for the President. I show that as well as by my posts, by my refusal to capitalize his name, as in President barack obama.
    Each time I type out his name, I get the red squiggly line that indicates a spelling error. Right clicking gives me suggestions for a correction. For obama, I get "Obadiah, Obadias, Bamako, Alabama and abeam"
    For barack, I get "barrack, bareback, Barabbas, backtrack and tamarack.
    I am considering calling our current POTUS "Barabbas Bamako" What do you think? I think there's a nice ring to it. Could it catch on?

    Surely! And I know in his shoes, I'd MUCH rather be called BB than BO.

    My guess is that if you met him in person and he had to hear 5 seconds worth of your ridiculous ranting, you'd be calling him Mr. "Please get your knee out of my chest and stop punching me in the face."

    True dat. So your side got to play with Bush's name for 8 years. Is turnabout now not fair play? I have zero respect for the man and dislike the red squigglies.

    I strongly doubt he would land a shot, but you can dream.
