I think he should be called Savonarola.

No word on Gingrich? Too bad. His would be fun. I shall call him "Hummer Smurf."

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.

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.

From the googles:

"Petrus is a magazine that brings you every month essential Papal and Magisterial Teachings and Documents, Pastoral Problems, Canon Law, Sunday Homilies and
News and Views from the Catholic World.

I hereby christen it Santorum's Constitution.

Both Javelin and Petrus have certain... phallic connotations, don't they?

Javelin was a lame attempt by George Romney's American Motors to save a dying car company, so I guess it's appropriate.

So do we get to now pick a SS code name for ourselves, just for fun?

I think I would go with Sphinx.
My choice for the wife would be Sassy
And then I would get the kids Spider and Snake.

Wouldn't that be something if Mr. Buttfroth was caught with butt froth in the next couple months?
