  •  The 2600 refers to the magazine/group. It was kind (0+ / 0-)

    of the Anonymous of its time. It's a bit of a throwback to my h@Xor dayz >;-), but it's just a handle I use. I don't make my nickname my real name.

    Regardless of what online handle one uses, I think it is fair to ask, what is it about rich people and childish nicknames? Mitt? That's not his name. It comes from his childhood nickname, "Mittens." He now want to be President Mittens. Remember Scooter Libby. Again, not a real name. Just a childish nickname. Tagg is at least an abbreviation of a real name (although it's part of that whole last-name-as-a-first-name fad that just will not die, especially with the rich and the wannabes), but it is still an example of how rich people show they are a different breed of people, because they are so important they can give goofy names to their kids and we aren't supposed to laugh. Well, I'm laughing...and it's just one of many reasons I'm laughing at the Romney Bunch.

    •  Actually, he's the namesake of his cousin, (0+ / 0-)

      Milton Romney, a football player. Short form, Mitt. Milton Romney was active in the 20s - and there were a lot of other names then that'd seem weird to us.

      •  Milt would be the short form. I've heard multiple (0+ / 0-)

        stories on this, and the Milton one seems to be a new invention because the mittens one sounded more embarrassing. Most of us don't name ourselves after our cousins. That really doesn't pass the smell test.

        •  Even if so, I still don't really care. (0+ / 0-)

          My sister was born as Yungsut, but after I came along, she eventually legally changed her name to Hana - a then unheard-of name that means 'one' in Korean, in reference to me being 'two.'

          •  No problem. We can have President Skeeter or (0+ / 0-)

            Gordo, if Christie runs. Just don't expect me to keep a straight face when President Boner addresses the nation.
