  3. According to intellius.com, there’s a Maverick Maverick living in Hayward CA. No indication of gender. Can’t help thinking there’s political ad potential there. “I’m Maverick Maverick and I approved this message.”

  4. It would be like finding some 28 year old guy today named Walter Mondale.

    hee! She’ll probably just change her name, though, or her mom will change it for her after she divorces her douchebag husband and gets sole custody.

  5. I miss the old days when the word maverick only reminded me of the movie “Top Gun”. Now I just use maverick ironically.

    McCain really should have just gone all the way and bought the rights to “Highway to the Danger Zone”. It would have been an appropriate enough campaign song, especially when coupled with the “Straight Talk Express” tour bus.

    As for the father who named his child “Sarah McCain Palin,” I feel the same way I do about Satanists – if you are going to buy into the BS, why would you align yourself with the losing side?

  11. Dang, I was gonna post “Major Major Major Major” to comment on “Sarah McCain Palin”, but someone already did that on the linked blog.

    Wouldn’t it be neat if Sarah McCain Palin grew up to run for president?
