originality

Evan Bayh hasn’t even been nominated for Vice President, and already the puns are everywhere: “Walk on Bayh”; “Bayh Bayh, Bayh”; “Bye-Bye Bayh”; “Stop Bayh” (this one is not necessarily a pun); and no doubt others I haven’t seen. But at least there’s some variety to these turns of phrase.*

Georgia, on the other hand, is on a lot of people’s minds. I’m not going to come up with any better pun – I don’t think the midnight trains are running, anyway – but I will recommend this piece in the London Review of Books on Georgia by Neal Ascherson from 2004 as background.

*If he is nominated and the Obama/Bayh ticket loses, I expect to see: “Bayh-er’s Remorse”
