Anagrams are bad. Anagrams/puns should be a capital offense.

The irony that the anagrams are being posted in capital letters has not escaped me.

Better than anagrams in this case are acronyms. The newest: VPILF

A bit . . . premature. But still clever.

Hoosier, Anagramserver? NOW you tell me!!! I gotta learn about this Intertubes thingie. I feel like the kid who just spent all summer memorizing his times tables, only to show up for the first day of class and realize that all the cool kids have calculators...

Incidentally, a question just between you and me, Hoosier. You wrote: "Better than anagrams in this case are acronyms. The newest: VPILF."

Um... your wife doesn't read this blog, does she? Whatever you do, don't scream "snow machine!" at the wrong moment... Maybe there's a whole new angle the DNC can exploit against Sarah Palin with a certain subset of the female electorate: "Governor Hottie is a threat to your marriage."

The best one I saw was an anagram of "McCain Palin" coined by a commenter at Ann Althouse's blog: "Calm in Panic" (I liked it so much I threw a youtube video around it).

What to expect the next time McCain's on the Tonight Show: "I condemn Jay's chin."

Looking at what might have been: had the Dem primaries worked out differently, one candidate might be "Horny, Thin, Radical Moll." And perhaps the GOP candidate would have given instructions to a drum majorette: "Twirl item randomly."

(Adding middle names makes for better anagrams, and has at least since the '80s, when the president was Insane Anglo Warlord. And why is it that the better anagrams are invective rather than praise?)

Thanks Eugene. I do not claim originality. I wish I could, but the Google . . . rogerailes.blogspot.com ("the non-evil one") may have been the first with Sharia Plan.

SlimAndSlam:
The Dems certainly can't match McCain/Palin when it comes to a catchy anagram: "Calm in Panic" is classic. Anagrams for "Obama Biden" tend towards the prosaic:

"Ma, I bend boa." (That's nice, dear. Now try bending a spoon.)
"I bemoan dab." (Oh, quit whining and get a sponge.)
"Bob, idea man." (Is there a prominent Dem campaign adviser named Bob? He should wear this on his ID badge.)

And William Safire's old Agnew line comes back to describe the Dem ticket's main supporters: "Nabob Media."

After hearing the chants of "zero, zero!" at the RNC last night, can we start spelling The One's name as 0bama rather than Obama?

Pronounced normally, but written as 0bama. A bit nerdy, but it should work in the blogosphere, eh?
