The Many Nicknames of Barack Obama

Richard Nixon was Tricky Dick. Bill Clinton was Slick Willie. And today, more than ever, Barack Obama needs a nickname.

It could be Dear Reader, a spin on North Korea’s Dear Leader and a stone-cold reference to the President’s ability to recite a great speech, thus making him our smartest president ever.

It could be JK (for “Job Killa”) a take on the fact U.S. businesses employ 61,000 fewer Americans today than they did when Obama took office, even though the working-age population has increased by 9 million.

It could be President Imp, a reflection on the 40 examples of the imperial presidency performed by His Majesty. It’s hard out here for an imp and all that.

It could be Barry Oh! a derivation on the cult of personality thing as epitomized by Jackie Oh! and relying on one of Obama’s many “also known as” names.

It could be Choomba Woomba, a nod to the President’s youthful allegiance to the skull bong, cocaine, and fermented beverages with a wink at Chumbawamba’s Tubthumping (except in Barack’s case, it would be brain thumpin’).

Or it could be Brak Obama, a Space Ghost Coast to Coast-themed reflection of the thick headed policies of Mr. Obama.

Other suggestions?


About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
