Dana Mathewson and I were discussing GOP candidates who upset the liberals, and a question arose. Please read the discussion, and feel free to chime in with any ideas:

"One way to gauge the quality of a conservative candidate is to count the number of liberal heads exploding. Now, what can we call that gauge?

Remember back in the sixties, when male students at Harvard developed the "milihelen" to rate female attractiveness? Helen of Troy had the face that launched a thousand ships, so they rated Harvard women on the basis of how many ships they figured each face would launch, with one milihelen being one ship. I don't remember if they had a rating for negative attractiveness. . ."


Good thing Hillary Clinton didn't go there; back then, she would have sunk far more vessels than she could possibly have launched.

Good thing she launched Bill's career; outside of one drunken episode (that produced a daughter) I doubt she launched anything else in her life.

How about mousseron-synnefometer? I thought mushroom cloud, since liberals have little more than fungi for brains anyway, and looked up the Greek translation of those words to give it a scientific touch.

Oh, by the way, there is a meter for measuring the amount of urine in a carpet that carpet cleaners use; they call it a urometer. The notion of the Mousseron-Synnefometer isn't that far fetched.
