Playing The Name Game

McBride gets a real giggle out of another conservative blogger's post in which he refers Republican presidential runner Mike Huckabee as "Huckaboom" and "Taxabee". She even tries a couple of insipid names herself.

The best one still belongs to Whallah!'s founder, Template, who came up with McSykes.

Of course, McBride won't give credit where credit is due.


  1. To give credit where it's due, I think John Kraus, formerly of One Wisconsin Now, first began using McSykes, at least in emails if not on a blog.

    That was in the days when the Chuckie and Jess linked to each other's every post and gushed about how insightful they were. A true mutual admiration society, which seems a little more one-sided now.

  2. "McBride Number Three?"

  3. "McSnide?"

    "The Walking Correction?"

    "Milwaukee Press Club Award Winner?"

    "Hot-tub Surfer?"
