A new Wizbang contest: rename the whackos!

Oliver Willis, who has garnered entirely too many links in the past, has irritated me again. He’s taken to calling the Republican leadership “American Taliban.”

This bugs me for a variety of reasons. For one, the most prominent real “American Taliban” probably agrees with Willis a lot more than he does with a lot of Republicans. For another… oh, hell, who cares. To cite more reasons is to give it far more credit than it deserves.

But I try not to meet anger with anger. Meeting it with facts is more successful, and with mocking derision more fun.

With that in mind, I’m announcing a “rename the whacko wing of the Democrats” contest. I’m talking about the Cousin Olivers, the Kossacks, the DUmmies, the Deaniacs.

The only rule I’m going to impose is that you try to keep it no harsher than PG-13. Senseless profanity is their hallmark, not ours.

To get things rolling, I’ll toss out a few examples.

The Democratic Appendix — utterly useless, until they flare up and threaten to kill their host.

The MPM (Masculine Porcine Mammalia) Wing — because they’re about as usefull as tits on a boar.

The Chappaquiddick Martyrs Brigade — every time they seem to be on the verge of victory, they drive off the bridge and drown their hopes.

OK, that’s three. Have at it, and winners should be announced Friday evening — after Kevin gets his Caption contest going.
