It’s certainly a mistake for someone with my last name, which most non-Ukrainians often find unpronounceable, to mock anyone else’s personal nomenclature.
But I can’t help myself. Mitt Romney’s campaign has just announced that Randy Bumps will serve as director of operations for the Republican vice presidential candidate (the "player to be named later").
Now, Randy Bumps as a moniker for a political operative is just too sweet. I mean you wouldn’t find that name for a character in a campaign novel, unless the author had a serious case of Dickensian mania.
I for one am hoping Mr. Bumps has a long and fruitful career.
You rock, Randy.
