Score one for the Secret Service!

September 11, 2008

Or rather for the White House Communications Agency, which – according to Wikipedia – is responsible for coming up with Secret Service codenames. In any case, whoever does this is very, very good at his job, as evidenced by Dick Cheney’s codename, ‘Angler’. Well, they’ve done it again. Todd Palin will now be known as ‘Driller’, though Obama may still be on top with ‘Renegade’. Why there isn’t a viral video set to the Jay-Z/Eminem song of the same name has long puzzled me.

(h/t Ambinder – who seems to think the candidates themselves have a hand in choosing them, but doesn’t cite a source.)
