Obama’s New Dog is Named…
Yes, alas, it’s Obama’s new dog.
From Sunday’s Washington Post.
The little guy is a 6-month-old Portuguese water dog given to the Obama girls as a gift by that Portuguese water dog-lovin’ senator himself, Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts. The girls named it Bo — and let it be noted that you learned that here first. Malia and Sasha chose the name, because their cousins have a cat named Bo and because first lady Michelle Obama’s father was nicknamed Diddley, a source said. (Get it? Bo . . . Diddley?)
Bo? I guess it could be worse.
My guesses for some other names that were probably considered, but couldn’t make the cut:
- Turbo (Tim Geithner’s Pick)
- Mary Jane
- Gimmick (this had to be the close second)
Are there any others that I’ve missed?
