Changing Your Name Is So 1993

Making diplomatic moves that will surely change the face of American politics forever, Idaho Senate candidate Marvin Richardson (aka Marvin Pro-Life Richardson aka Marvin "I Want to be in the News" Richardson) has opted to legally change his name to Pro-Life.

Inspired by the prurient dealings of Senator Larry Craig, Pro-Life intends to add a great deal of confusion to the upcoming Senate race among those that can't discern between a name and a political platform.

Little did Pro-Life know that he hasn't been the first politically-motivated American to change his name. No, no, no. Brian James Hellwig (aka The Ultimate Warrior) legally changed his name to Warrior in 1993, ostensibly in an attempt to be taken more seriously by the American public.

Judging by the sane entries on Warrior's blog, I think he made the right choice.
