Now that Mitt Romney will be flanked by the Secret Service owing to increasing crowd sizes at his primary events, he's going to need a code name. As is custom. "The use of such names was originally for security purposes and dates to a time when sensitive electronic communications were not routinely encrypted; today, the names simply serve for purposes of brevity, clarity, and tradition."
Thanks, Wikipedia! Now on to the fun of assigning a code name to the robotic Republican front-runner. Strictly for brevity and clarity, not mocking.
