    So I was reading that the VP for the GOP is going with "Bowhunter" because it's his favorite past time. Romney is going with "Javelin".

    I simply had to know the rest, so I hit this page and discovered two things

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secret_Service_codename

    1) People in power should not get to pick their code names. Over half the names on the list have NOTHING to do with the person they refer too.

    2) The people AROUND people in power are bat "S" crazy. :eek:

    So what would your Secret Service Codename be? Or what would you choose for another member of the forum?

    I did like how Pope John Paul the II was codenamed "Halo". I found that one funny.

    Sarah Palin's husband was going to be called "Driller"....LMAO!!!

    JFK was called "Lancer" and Lady Lacqueline was called "Lace".... That one is just too easy, kind of like Dog's sister. :D

    Speaking of which, time to start nominating.

    For Robocop I would suggest we call him "Shadow"

    Canebrake gets to be "Gelding" - Because he sure isn't getting "Colt"

    bkt - Professor. Easy call

    Davyboy - Hmmm, I don't have a clever name for Davy. Everything that comes to mind is too British and easy.

    Shihan is definitely getting "Rubberneck" because his head is going to be on a swivel with those young interns running around.

    Didn't Prometheus steal fire and give it to man?

    RSG is getting Freya. Yowza! :D

    Sebbie is getting Athena

    WoC will be "A. Oaks" for Annie Oakley. ;)

    Makes me chuckle reading this because as kids we had code words for everything bad that we were doing.

    C3 would be too smart to give fire to man. Rent maybe,not give

    I wonder what kind of warning label came with fire?

    Funny part? I know a couple of those are actually wrong. That, or their call signs I heard them using when in the service and they were on the horn is an entirely different callsign.

    Were you LEO as opposed to Secret Service? If so, yes. VIPs often get a new one when giving speeches or going towards hostile areas or any specific event where their security will be integrated with a pre-existing security, like a police force, so that anybody listening in with a police scanner won't know the VIP in question's code name, and anybody that already knows the codename who shouldn't won't be able to get accurate information after an attack.

    Like if a terrorist cell knows that their target is "Ploofy", and some gunman in the crowd fires at their target. If the call were to go out that "Ploofy" was down, they'd know they were successful. If the call were to go out that "Enigma" was down, they wouldn't know if it were there intended target, or one of the highly trained agents around him who are there to stop things like that.

    One with charred edges.


    Then we decided to include the warning as part of the product.
