Yesterday, I actually saw a girl with a homemade "THANK YOU GOD" shirt with Obama logos in place of the Os.

I think of it as condensing "OMG Obama Won!" into a sweet little graphic, but you are right that it has a few risks in terms of interpretation. Kind of like the HOPE poster, with it's simple colors being mistakable for socialist propaganda of a past time. I'm trying to think of another example, but all I can come up with are those signs that say "Slow children crossing".

On the other hand, here's some fun news: Barack, Michelle, and the two kids have the secret services IDs of Renegade, Renaissance, Radiance, & Rosebud, respectively. How awesome are those names? Answer: totally awesome.

I hope the Obama girls enjoy their new puppy. I admit, I feel sorry for and president's children. I think growing up with that much attention has to be challenging.

What's the point of code names if they're public knowledge?

(If the point is merely to sound awesome, of course, then they succeed.)

Codenames provide a unique identifier for that particular namespace.

Oh, right! I forgot about all those other people the Secret Service protects who are named 'Barack Obama'.

In November 2004 I was constantly tempted to add TF to all the W bumper stickers. Or replace the initial with a Y.
