Bob Reis: What’s in a nickname?

What’s in a nickname?

Regarding your Aug. 30 editorial “Gov. ‘McFrankly’ ”: The governor has shown such a breathtaking lack of leadership and political savvy that there is competition to make up funny names for him. “McFrankly” is OK, but I prefer “McCrony.” And “Patsy” because that’s what he is in relation to the legislature. “Patsy McCrony.” I think the shoe fits.
