JackieRabbit: vpb: Petrus? Isn't that Latin for Peeter? I guess he wanted something santorum related.

Yes. "petrus" is Latin for ock. Peter, the apostle. Jesus' "rock". His real name was Simon. Jesus called him Peter, since he was supposedly the most steadfast of the apostles. Peter started getting a big head and Jesus called him down for his arrogance, telling him that he would deny him thrice before the cock crew.


Seems pretty apt, given Santorum denying Catholic teaching in favor of Evangelical herpaderp.

I wonder if Romney ever drove one of these.


Seems to "common". But I'm sure he's friends with a few car company owners.

Interesting.

I'm guessing "Rusty Trombone" was already taken.

DjangoStonereaver: Joe Lieberman's codename during the 2000 election was "Loser".


I thought it was Droopy.

Lol, Javelin, nice Romney. Why didn't you just choose Punch Rockgroin?

Obvious a Cleaveland Steamer but with santorum substitution instead. Pretty obvious. Well, it will be now.


It's a Cleveland Petrus, because he's so anal retentive it comes out like a rock.

Interesting. I also didn't know the idiotic code names for the Obamas until now.

William Randolph Hearst was also apparently fond of the codename Rosebud.

Devolving_Spud: PETRUS was a gay club in Atlanta in the late 80's early 90's. "Where the Gods Dance"

Beautiful young oiled up muscle boys dancing...great light show, all the best music...

It was FABULOUS! Excellent code name for Santorum!


Do you remember the bar in Macon? I want to say the name was The Pegasus? I was the drunk straight girl sitting near the stage. I got the biggest kick out of that crazy emcee and her sequined dresses.

I know you're required to have a humorectomy before joining the Secret Service , but the guy in the center of TFA's photo looks like he's got high levels of negative humor

Purple Nurple, Preening Peacock, Pinwheel, Plinth, Plank, Plunk.

That's all I got.
 
2012-03-20 01:21:24 PM
Romney's code name is appropriate; a javelin also makes points on both sides.

Simon Peter stood before the cock crew who asked him, "How many licks to the center of the Tootsie Pop?", and he said he did not know. THey brandished their turgid, veiny cocks and again asked, "Tootsie Pop! How many licks!?" But he was sore afraid and would not say. Etc.

The cock crew. Sounds like some deviant porn production company.

Wow.

So he's basically comparing himself to St. Peter.

I think this may be a textbook case of hubris.

So Santorum picks a name that can be either the first pope or the rock of religion. I always knew his faith was self-worship.

I did...

FTA: Perhaps "Javelin" is a reference to the '60s muscle car made by American Motors Corporation, the company once run by George Romney.

The operative word is PERHAPS. That's just speculation as to why he chose the code word. However, my comment was that using Javelin as a code name (instead of Marlin, if you want to go with a 1960's AMC car reference or any other code name) conveyed a sense of power and virility. And of course, the phallus symbolism. That's also probably why AMC chose that name for that vehicle...

So, yes, I read the article. The original comment still stands.

/maybe I've been watching too much Mad Men...

Why would the word "Cleveland" come before "Douchebag"?

Is this some phrase I never heard before?

No it doesn't. I now return you to your original comment.

Why not Beef Supreme? Because his dad never ran a Beef Supreme company. Perhaps Mittens isn't a He-Man, chest-beating, phallic waving Beef Supreme Taco eating guy. Perhaps he's just honoring his dad's old car company.

You realize to honor his dad's company, his choices included:

1) Rambler
2) Ambassador
3) AMX
4) Gremlin
5) Matador
6) Pacer

Perhaps he should have chosen Gremlin? Maybe the Javelin was just his favorite car after excluding such choices as "Rambler."

GIS for 'sexy javelin' is actually pretty cool.

Does anyone else think that 'Petrus' wouldn't be easy to communicate via radio?

"Petrus" is a biblical allusion-as in St. Peter, the first pope. (The Latin name is derived from the Greek word for "rock.")

As in dumb as a "Petrus'?
