  • Live up to the Snake! (Name the Snake.)

    Posted by Chicago Boyz Archive on June 23rd, 2011 (All posts by )

    I have been going off about how we have to have a countervailing image to the Obama 2012 image in the zero, on a blue field, which I am already seeing all over the place.

    The Gadsden snake in the zero, on a red field, is a good placeholder until the GOP has a candidate — and hopefully after.

    We need a GOP candidate whose name can proudly be matched with the snake.

    We need a GOP candidate who is serious about cleaning up the mess.

    We need a GOP candidate who is not a squish.

    We need a GOP candidate who will live up to the snake.

    We all need to live up to the snake.

    We need a name for the snake.

    I don’t think the snake has ever had a name.

    There’s a first time for everything.

    I propose Ronald Gadsden Rattlesnake, a/k/a Ronnie Rattlesnake a/k/a Ronnie Rattler.

    Ronnie for obvious reasons.

    Your proposals are solicited. It will have to be really good to be better than Ronnie Rattler.

    Snake 2012 stuff here.

      I propose the snake as the Republican candidate for president. He has a higher approval rating than any of those proposed so far. Everyone approves of the snake. We can figure out his name later. He would be the first serpent-American candidate.

    2. Lexington Green Says:

      Ronnie is a proud serpent-American, but he has to humbly decline the honor. If nominated he will not slither, if elected he will not serve.

      Do you truly wish to extrapolate that striking visual image to allow allusion to actual snake handling?
      Just imagine the field day left wing nuts would have playing on that phrase.

    4. Lexington Green Says:

      Rattlers can’t be handled. They bite.

    5. Bill Brandt Says:

      How about Vinnie Viper.

      Hey it’s 06:03 here. It’s the best I can do.

    6. Gerry from Valpo Says:

      With all due respect, naming the icon suggests a smarmy, silly college athletic mascot…like Brutus Buckeye.

      The snake icon itself is so enduring, powerful and well known it needs no name or slogan.

    7. John Wolfsberger, Jr. Says:

      Why not keep it simple and appropriate. Let’s call him “Chris.”

      I’d like that background to be blue and red. I’ve been active in the tea party since the beginning and it represents a good enough cross section of both parties as well as independents. Two of the organizations I’ve joined are led by former Democrats and we all change our affiliations as needed to influence primary races. As for the snake, I’d rather he/she remain an unnamed but powerful cipher, one that crosses the usual lines without fear.

    9. Tex Lovera Says:

      I suggest “Fang”. (Wait, wasn’t that Phyllis Diller’s husband??)

    10. Jonathan Says:

      Never mind the snake, we need a candidate.

    11. Lexington Green Says:

      We won’t have a candidate for over a year.

      So, we can let Obama’s image dominate everything in the meantime, or have a placeholder to occupy the opposition spot.

      The snake is the placeholder.

      Further, the snake sets a high standard.

      That is what I mean by “live up to the snake.”

    12. Mitch Says:

      He’s already named: “Unleash the fury, Mitch!”

    13. Anonymous Says:

      Excellent idea, Lex. I’ve been seeing the LOL—with The Obama’s logo as the “O” for sometime. He will be defeated.

    14. J. Scott Shipman Says:

      That was me in anonymous…switched to Chrome today…

      Hey boyz, just because it’s long doesn’t mean you have to name it.

    16. Southern Man Says:

      What I want is a bunch of yellow, round Gadsden stickers that I can stick on any Obama bumper stickers I might find.

    17. BruceB Says:

      Well the eastern diamond backs I used to have were known as Sunshine, Flower and Rainbow. I always felt these were great names for rattlers.
      Then there is always Stanley see:
