[bumped - BarbinMD]Daily Kos and baby animals, we're pleased to announce a Kossack Kontest to name our newborn goposaur.
The cute critter is just a few days old, but we've already developed strong emotional bonds to the li'l guy (or gal -- we haven't quite figured out how one determines the sex of a goposaur). And we know that the creature will be with us a long, long time, as his or her parents -- Mr. Whackadoodle Social Conservative Republican and Mrs. Ayn Rand Corporatecrat Republican -- have demonstrated remarkable staying power and the ability to drive any competing, sane, species of Republican out of their ecological niche. It's a nice, small family of three -- and Baby Goposaur is gonna be on the family Christmas card for years to come, a fine symbol of a shrinking and nearly extinct brood.
So we need to name the bundle of joy. And that's where you come in. One entry per Kossack in the thread below, please. I'm submitting, as a first shot, Grover the Goposaur. After all, alliteration is awesome, Grover's a cute name, and Grover Norquist is exactly the kind of loser who turned the once proud Republican Party into a small, atavistic pack of dinosaurs.
The winner will be announced later in the weekend or on Monday, as will any prizes. (Though I wouldn't count on anything more than a shoutout from Markos.) So have fun, and happy naming!
