H/T Scissorhead Fran

Scissorhead Skinny-D says we need an official MPS Style Council-approved sobriquet for George Santos. He’s right, and we’ve been negligent in this important manner.

Please nominate an appropriate nickname for Mr. Santos in the comments, and we will have a vote (probably rigged) and a final decision later. All the usual bribes and honorarium are accepted.

So for 1/17 of 3/78 of a point towards your midterm exam, NAME GEORGE SANTOS. No. 2 lead pencils only.

[Sticking this on top for all the usual reasons, fresher posts —if any!— will be below.]

    FYI, Roy Edroso called him “George Santos, International Man of Mystery,” which cracked me up.

    “The Lady in Red?”

    Sorry but I just can’t resist: “he puts on women’s clothing and hangs around in bars.”

    I have nothing against trans folks — my remote office manager is one — but as with Sen. Graham, I dislike the hypocrisy of those who can’t he be honest about who they are.

      More musical accompaniment featuring red-clad ladies.

        That poor girl, clearly another victim of “the jab” what with the uncontrollable shaking…


      • Redhand says:

        @MDavis Not sure what “the Jab” is (no humor intended), but I can tell you I almost hesitated in posting the “Liar Liar” video because I found the Dancing Goil so utterly disturbing. It’s not that I have any objection to the since-time-immemorial tradition of “Bring on the dancing girls” or the cabaret oeuvre. But this presentation was such a grotesque and awkward and unnecessary addition to the band and song that it felt more like a sick, pure-exploitation slave girl pantomime of some kind, just flesh for flesh sake jiggling on the stage, without even the leering initial look of the soljers and later pathos at the end of Paths of Glory.

        However, d’oh, I may be overthinking this. 😉


      • MDavis says:

        “The jab” = COVID vaccine.
        Your video, as you apologize for it, fits the jab things really well then. It’s a new and cringeworthy (and mockable) claim that getting the Covid vaccine has been resulting in some folks having uncontrollable shaking. They post videos, commenters either go “Boo on pfizer!” or “what a load of crap.” along with pointing out how conveniently selective the shaking is.
