After months of posting, posturing and pestering; debating, berating and deliberating; the first electoral action of the 2016 US political cycle is taking place Monday in Iowa. As a responsible citizen, I am here to educate my readers about the fine details of each candidate’s policy platform so we can all be more informed voters.
Just kidding! Instead, we’re going to learn each Republican candidate’s actual name, using anagrams. Did you know that “Jeb” isn’t a name, it’s actually an acronym-nickname? A nickronym? Yes, this is what procrastination looks like while I’m working on a huge post that will (hopefully) be done next week.
You probably don’t know each candidate’s full name and middle name, but the common names (Jeb, Carly, Rand) should be enough for you to guess each anagram in red. Click on each one to see the answer.
