It's really not that clever
While I'm no internet curmudgeon like my brother :), I think sometimes people get a little carried away. I don't mind a little bit of clever wordplay if it's actually clever, but this election season, I'm seeing a lot of things that get old. For example, I've seen various permutations of McCain's name, used in every single comment the author makes - McSame, McLame, McInsane, JSMcC*nt, and others that escape me at the moment. There are also various other forms such as fRightwing, and Reichtwing I see fairly often. Enough already!
