"You called me a communist? A communist? That all you got?"

During his time as president, Barack Obama has been vilified by critics as a liberal, a socialist and a communist. Which is it? Of more importance: What's next?

It's impossible to tell, but it's important for people to be able to discuss politics and sound intelligent in the process. Before long, even the term "communist" will become passé. What's an Obama hater to do?

As a public service, this blog has created an Obama Insult Generator. The user simply selects one term from each category to form a new insult.

Here are the categories:

Category 1: fraudulent, power-hungry, greedy, radical, subversive, evil, cynical, cold, calculating, heartless, self-centered, etc.

Category 2: Neo-, anti-, pro-, super-, un-, ultra-, left-wing, old-line, new-age, etc.

Category 3: Socialist, communist, Marxist, Leninist, Maoist, papist, Muslim, fascist, fellow traveler, Red, Bolshevik, nihilist, Kenyan, pinko, welfare stater, Trotskyist, Stalinist, extremist, anarchist, un-American, turncoat, patriot, hypocrite, pathological, etc.

Category 4: impostor, usurper, fraud, fake, phony, pretender, charlatan, mountebank, liar, fabricator, poseur, traitor, running dog, puppet, lackey, crony, apologist

So let's try it out: President Obama is a power-hungry neo-Bolshevik traitor; or a greedy, pro-fascist, Muslim running dog; or a radical Kenyan ultra-pinko apologist.

The more creative types will see they can mix and match items from each category instead of taking one from each: for instance, President Obama is a cynical, calculating, new-age, lying, anarchist charlatan.

The possibilities are nearly endless, especially if users add their own favorite words to the mix. So the next time you're in a gathering where Obama-bashing is the norm and you want to fit in, just sneak an Obama Insult Assembly Kit from your wallet and start calling him a fraudulent, anti-American, pathological, super-nihilistic, apologist mountebank. Men will respect you and women will admire you.

Why limit it to Obama? I think you're on to a very marketable item here with this Insult Assembly kit. Put it up on Amazon and we'll have to use the word "swanky" to describe your new lifestyle.

Fabulous idea - you can then sell the add on packet like: Capitalist Pig Dog
I'm sure with some time and a sharpie we could create even more...

Great idea. I'll just sell the same stuff in different covers, and no one will be the wiser.

Modeled off the Shakespearean Insult Generator, I presume?

In my former life I was a journalist, and in 1985 I was reading about "buzz phrases" and how they should be avoided because they are baby clichés and often vague. The writer wrote a "Buzz Phrase Generator" that comprised three lists of words, with a buzz phrase generated by picking a word from each column. This yielded results like "parallel transitional contingency," "synchronized third-generation hardware" and "total reciprocal mobility." I readily admit to stealing the concept.

Republicans are silly white people and every code word listed starts with N, but they can only get close...i.e shuckin' an jivin'. The GOP will start accepting Hispanic, Latino, and Blacks when the women of each race bear babies that are 67 years old, white, and look like Dick Cheney...what a country. Say what you want about our president, but Republicans will only resurface to power when they have a candidate that can sing like Al Green...not Mitt Romney who sings like Shecky Green-Holiday

If Romney sang during the campaign, I thank the gods for letting me miss it.

You should be able to find a clip of him singing the song America, The Beautiful...It is gut wrenching

I would never have guessed that. I always figured Mitt was a hip-hop fan.

Very disappointing to read. I thought he was more gangsta.
