Looking back, stateside

US Presidents, as it might be: Dilbert Dyson, Rudehealth, Harry S McCatrthyism, Dwight D. Eigersanction, Scatterbrained Kennedy, Lyndon B. Tonkin, Illface Nixon, Flawed, The Giant Crater, President Laserpistol, President Cosh, Bill F. Clitman. But not until now has a President been given the dubious distinction of being known, like a Kafka hero, only by one letter. Such a denuded signifier.

Did I say US Presidents? I meant professional wrestlers. My mistake.
