Who Comes Up With These Names?

We were sitting in a resturant in DC Saturday afternoon when we got the news about coalition forces launching airstrikes against Libyan forces loyal to Kuhdaffy. The chiron at the bottom of the screen said that "Operation Odyssey Dawn" has commenced and the hammer was down. (Not The Hammer. She's never down, unles its called for and then she's down for most anything Uncle J and I can dream up)

I turned to my trusted source for all things military, Uncle Jimbo, and asked who the heck comes up with the names for thes missions. He didn't know.

Well, apparently, there were several mission names that didn't make the first round. Patriot Post has found the notes in a trash bin outside of the Wilmington Delaware AMTRAK station where Joe "Plugs" Biteme must have dropped them during a visit to "his" AMTRAK station.

In no particular order of importance, we humbly present them for your edification:

The White House tossed out a number of perfectly good names before arriving at "Operation Odyssey Dawn":

Maestro, drum roll if you please:

Top 10 Rejected Obama Mission Names
10.Operation Nine Months In The Senate Didn't Prepare Me For This
9. Operation Organizing for Libya
8. Operation Double Standard
7. Operation FINE! I'll Do Something
6. Operation Enduring Narcissism
5. Operation So That's What the Red Button Does
4. Operation France Backed Me Into A Corner
3. Operation Start Without Me
2. Operation Unlike Bush Wars This One Is Justified Because Hey Look A Squirrel
1. Operation Aimless Fury

There's just no pleasing some people.
