I'm shocked Rick's ego was reined in to only allowing him to claim the name of the first Pope. I'm sure the list of rejected names included "Savior," "JesusII," "Freedom," "ReaganJunior," or whatever his Grinder account name is this month.

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

His dad ran the company, but left years before the Javelin was introduced. Or it was called AMC, publicly.

Rambler wasn't doing anything the least bit sporty until the late 60s, well after George Romney had moved to be governor of Michigan (and HUD Secretary?).

But I would imagine the Romney family ended up with quite a bit of AMC stock, plus pickings on cars.....

2012-03-20 10:51:36 AM  
Out of respect for the Apostle Saint Peter, who is seen by Catholics as the first Pope, no Pope has ever adopted the name Peter II. It is considered unlikely that any future pope would choose the name. Many popes have, however, had Peter (or a regional variant) as their baptismal name, most recently Pope Benedict XIII (Pietro Orsini).

The likelihood of such a choice is further diminished by the final passage of the Prophecy of the Popes attributed to St. Malachy, a text which is well-known in Catholic circles, though having no official standing. The Prophecy refers to a Petrus Romanus (Peter the Roman) as the final Pope: he would "feed his sheep in many tribulations" and in the days of the "final persecution."[1] This text invests the name of Peter II with an apocalyptic connotation. According to most interpretations of the prophecy, Peter II would be the successor of Pope Benedict XVI.

Well, he's sooper Catholic, so it might be his confirmation name.

But actually, it took two seconds to come up with the real reason:

He said he liked it because "Petrus" is Latin for "Peter" -- the Americanized name of his grandfather Pietro -- and "rock." (new window)
 
2012-03-20 10:53:58 AM  
I would've been impressed with Santorum picking something like "Faithful", "Servant", or "Reverent", choices a person committed to his faith would want to be called. To choose Petrus is to be extremely big-headed about your singular role in bringing Christianity back to the US.
"And upon this Rock I shall build my church."

Romney's choice for "Javelin" might be about the car, or about the phallic connotation, but there's another possible reference he's making, and if it is, then it's kind of amusing:

In the Book of Mormon, there's a guy named Teancum (that's not the amusing part... well, okay, it kind of is, but that's not the relevant bit), and at one point he stealthily sneaks into the home of some corrupt king and puts a javelin through his heart and kills him instantly, and he gets away.

But them, a bit later, Teancum tries to do the same thing to another corrupt despot of some sort, but the javelin goes "near the heart" and although he kills him, he lets out a yell which gets the guards' attention and they in turn kill Teancum. (I may have gotten a few details wrong: it's been many years since I bothered with such things.)

/Cool Story Joe

So, if we want to search for an analogy, perhaps Romney is Teancum, but if that's the case, why would he choose someone who, although he succeeded in his goals, ultimately failed by being caught and killed? Maybe it's the old martyr syndrome?

mercator_psi: Romney's choice for "Javelin" might be about the car, or about the phallic connotation, but there's another possible reference he's making, and if it is, then it's kind of amusing:

In the Book of Mormon, there's a guy named Teancum (that's not the amusing part... well, okay, it kind of is, but that's not the relevant bit)


Tean cum?

hurdboy: syberpud: Possibly, he did run the company for a while.

His dad ran the company, but left years before the Javelin was introduced. Or it was called AMC, publicly.

Rambler wasn't doing anything the least bit sporty until the late 60s, well after George Romney had moved to be governor of Michigan (and HUD Secretary?).

But I would imagine the Romney family ended up with quite a bit of AMC stock, plus pickings on cars.....


Was George the one who said the "only race I make cars for is the human race."

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.

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.

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.

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."

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