While the rest of the Administration worries about Scuds and tanks, a few of George Bush's advisers have turned their attention to the weighty matter of what to call the President's re-election effort. The straightforward CREEP (Committee to Re-Elect the President) will simply not do: too many associations with the tainted Nixon and Watergate years. Other possibilities discussed, albeit none very seriously:
CRAB (The Committee to Re-Anoint Bush). Considered too regal and, uh, pinched.
REBAQ (Re-Elect Bush and Quayle). Main drawback: sounds like an aerobics shoe.
PREC (The President's Re-Election Committee). Not regal enough. Also, invites mispronunciation and ridicule.
