Why, in an otherwise quite sober news story do we come across the formulation I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby? What's the deal with this guy? Shenanigans, that's what. Remember how the PR magic of Max Clifford got Mohamed "Al" Fayed his clubbable " al-" designation. What's your PR name? My PR name is: D. Carl "Yo" Ashida Ayling.
In separate and unrelated news, I think it's safe to say that George W. "Due Process" Bush and Dick "No to Torture" Cheney have successfully lain the smackdown about the persons of Joseph C. "Disgruntled, Low Ranking" Wilson IV and his wife Valerie "Malcontent" Plame - especially now the Judith "No Comment" Miller fracas has died down. No yellowcake my arse.
