Name That Motherfucker

If I had to pick one word to describe most of the major individuals in the Bush Administration, it would be "motherfucker." See, they're all there. Paul Wolfowitz is a motherfucker. Donald Rumsfeld is a motherfucker. Michael Chertoff is a huge motherfucker. John Bolton is a motherfucker to end all motherfuckers. John "Death Squad" Negroponte? Not a bigger motherfucker in the house.

So in light of this keen observation, I've decided we should have a little game. It's called "Name That Motherfucker" (here I steal shamelessly from s.z. over at World O'Crap and her "Name The Wingnuts"). I'll give descriptions and quotes from each of our motherfuckers of the week, and you can guess who the fuck these shitheads are. See, I feel it's important we know who it is we're dealing with here, given how much damage these schmucks are doing left and right. Anyway, prizes will be given for correctly naming each motherfucker. This week we'll only have two, but in the future, we should have more!

1) This motherfucker might be a little more obscure, since he's an economist. He's sometimes at Harvard, often times fucking over the rest of us. Now this motherfucker claims President Clinton was a supporter of "privatizing" (read: destroying) Social Security. According to him, liberal arguments against this "privatization" are merely "less elegant paraphrases" of Karl Marx. During the campaign, in one of his less motherfucker-y moments, he said "I think outsourcing is a growing phenomenon, but it's something that we should realize is probably a plus for the economy in the long run."

2) This motherfucker is quite possibly the motherfucker I have the most hostility towards. Opposition to him earlier this year was attributed by the more shit-stained members of the Senate to him being Hispanic. He's one of Bush's possee from Texas, where he was a judge, and he's been talked about as a potential Supreme Court nominee (which would certainly add to the motherfucker quotient of that body...Scalia and Thomas just ain't enough). In Texas, this motherfucker hid information from Governor Bush when informing him about clemency requests. Currently this motherfucker is stalling the Valerie Plame investigation despite publicly claiming he "thinks" it is moving forward, adding the CIA to the list of people he's shat on, which includes any number of detainees.

And as a bonus, who is this description of:

In her books, [wingnut] can be erudite and persuasive, as when [he/she] exposes the left's chronic softness on communism. But [his/her] signature is [his/her] gleeful willingness to taunt liberals and Democrats, to say out loud what some other conservatives dare only think--that Bill Clinton is a "horny hick," for example, and his wife "pond scum."


Here's an example of this wingnut's "erudite and persuasive" writing:

Liberals have a preternatural gift for striking a position on the side of treason. You could be talking about Scrabble and they would instantly leap to the anti-American position. Everyone says liberals love American, too. No they don't. Whenever the nation is under attack, from within or without, liberals side with the enemy. This is their essence.


Truly someone after a motherfucker's heart.

Edit: I think I'd also be interested to see some creative nicknames for these schmucks. So feel free, please, even if you think someone else has already gotten them.
