Patterico's Pontifications


What’s In a Name?

Filed under: 2008 Election — DRJ @ 8:05 pm

[Guest post by DRJ]

Former Rep. Charlie Wilson (D-TX) wants the country to be led by Osama bin Laden … uh, that is … Obama and Biden.

Meanwhile, the Smoking Gun posted documents relating to felony weapon and drug charges filed today against Tharin Gartrell, Nathan Johnson, and Shawn Adolf, “three idiots allegedly involved in a plot to kill Senator Barack Obama” because of his race. What are the odds the alleged ringleader is named Adolf?

  1. Obama bin Biden

    — Hey, DRJ. Is someone gonna put the brakes on this guy over in the “Day 1 of the Democratic National Convention” thread? Mass migraines are spreading.

  2. The ringleader’s real name will clearly be “Bush” once the Truthers get into it. We’ll hear all about Prescott Bush… again. Etc.

  3. IT,

    I’ve avoided that thread because it gives me a headache to read long text in CAPSLOCK. For those who have kept up, point me to something you find offensive so I can evaluate it. If need be, I’ll take it up with Patterico.

  4. PS – You should get credit for Obama bin Biden. You were the first or among the first to use it.

    Thanks, but my investigation reveals that several people around the net came up with it, independently like I did, at roughly the same time. At least one company ( is already selling t-shirts and bumper stickers!

    Hey, I thought I had come up with something when I used “pressassination” in reference to MLK and Malcolm X the other day. Turns out that not only was it not new, it had actually been used by someone else, in reference to Malcolm X, many years ago. Shows what I know.

  6. Maybe it’s just on this website but you should get credit for OBB just as JD has the TM on the word racist.

  9. Is Biden as veep nominee really all that more difficult for McCain to counter? How about bring up slow joe’s credit card industry connections with help of his son not in Iraq? Or all the rationalizations about his lies related to plagiarism in ’88 or his terrible track record of being wrong all the time on Iraq?

    As an aside for you LA area people- RIP for the co-author of 100 Things To Do Before You Die. Mr. Freeman died in a fall at his home at age 47.

  10. Definitely a Freudian slip, I think what he meant to say was that “We have been led by Osama Bin Laden”.
    Or rather someone should say it šŸ™

    After all it was Charlie Wilson’s war šŸ™‚

  11. Oiram…
    Get an editor.
    That is complete gibberish.

    Yeah, it was kind of silly comment, but the original post here wasn’t much more logical.

    Protect and defend McCain from slip ups, but open season on any Democrat.

  13. It’s what they call “protecting your back”.

    Open Season?
    Only if they walk across my AOR.

    Another Drew (7e1367)

  14. Let me know if the Democrats walk all over your “A”dult “O”riented “R”ock Drew #13.

    And I get accused of spewing gibberish.

    Too funny (as usual)

  15. If they haven’t already, I’m sure the late night pundits have jumped on the obvious BO reference for Obama, and now we have OB – a little golf lingo there that stands for “out of bounds.”

  16. Serious question: is “Adolf” his real last name?
