WH Correspondents: Name Game

A Wonkette operative writes to elaborate on today's WP piece on WH correspondents, which included the neologism "Dickersonian," after the "cleverly worded, seemingly harmless, but incisive questions" of Time's John Dickerson:


Well... I don't know what 'Dickersonian' is. I think it requires a cripple, a Christmas goose, and some ghosts. But apparently White House reporters like to think their names mean something. So here are some others...

[Helen] Thomasian: Stops just short of calling Bush 'baby killer.' Calls him 'infant killer.'

[Terry] Moranian: Requires laticework diagram and footnotes to follow.

[David] Gregorian: Chanted. Served with 'drinkable' wine.

[Elisabeth] Bumillerite: All questions start with, "I work for the New York Times..."

[Mike] Allenesque: Rushed, earnest, aimed directly at groin.

[David] Sangerfroid: "Mr. President will you just say out loud what Condi has already told me off the record."

[John] Robertsonian: Desperately trying to scare up just one Rather-like confrontation with President.

[Dana] Milbankshot: Strangely silent. Never called on.
