Rebranding Gitmo

Fox News got bored and asked a bunch of marketing weenies whether they thought that Gitmo could be “rebranded” so that liberals wouldn’t reflexively scream “TORTURE!” every time they heard it’s name.

Sadly, the best yonder marketing weenies could come up with for a new name was “Offshore Holding Facility”.

Let’s see if we can do better:


* Waves & Waterboards

* Tribunal Town

* Club Splodey

* Misfired Martyrs Motel

* Cuban Clown College

* Korandemonium!

* Interrogation Island

* Jihadi Jamaica

* Allaholics Anonymous

* Viva la Incarceracion!


Any other suggestions?

  4. FoxNews has been getting more and more pitiful each day since the beginning of the Obama campaign. Much like the Republican party, they seem to feel that they’ve got the right wing viewers hooked so they’ll go after the left-wing viewers too…by leaning left, of course. And so, pretty much every show each day asks ridiculous questions like, “Is there any hope at all for the Republican party in 2010 or 2012?” And, giving daily briefings on the unprecented popularity of president Obama, despite the fact that his numbers fall way behind Reagan and other presidents (even GW Bush) at this time of their presidencies.

    The defining moment for the FoxNews freefall was the Bush/Paulson bailout. While the overwhelming majority of Americans were clogging the phone lines of representatives telling them to keep the government out of it, and certainly not to sign onto legislation bailing out these companies, all the while the continually-asked question on FoxNews wasn’t about the validity or content of the bailout but, instead, “What will it take to get this done?”

    It’s a shame, it used to be a great network, yet now it’s the home of Bob “never heard of anything ever done by a democrat I didn’t support” Beckel, Geraldo “let’s hand the country over to my friends who happen to all be illegal immigrants” Rivera, Bill “I’m not a conservative, I just pretend to be one on TV” O’Reilly, and a huge cadre of 20-something pretty girls who know absolutely nothing about the world, letalone politics.

  5. Instead of closing Gitmo, we should close Cuba. 12 million detainees without charges ever filed against them held for over 50 years, property seized, thousands killed and/or disappeared, military leadership that answers to no one and defies UN rules (especially Geneva convention) and certainly doesn’t feed their inmates a healthy and complete diet.

  6. No Jimmy, it’s more like it doesn’t matter what you do, how you do it, when, where or why. No one notices, no one sees, no one acknowledges……..but make a mistake and someone is right there to point it out…….loudly.

    Whine, whine, whine. I know it’s life in the big city but raising my children was so much more fulfilling. At least they occasionally noticed what I did for them (more than occasionally, I have been blessed with loving, sweet children. Not perfect mind you, but really nice people on the whole).

    Done whining. Sorry.

  7. “*72 Virgin Islands” – chocolatier007

    That’s right up there with “Allaholics Anonymous”.

    * Al Qaeda’s First Home Depot Franchise

    * Fantasy Nightmare Island

    * That ‘How Did We Get That Patch of Land In Cuba?’ Place

    (See, Marko, it’s all about trying, in spite of being ‘bad.’)

  9. A friend and I were talking about this… Our suggestion is:

    Aleutian Island Resort.

    Pick an uninhabited Aleutian island, the further north the better. Part of the name is ‘Island Resort’, so how bad can it be, right? ;>

  10. Survivor: Guantanamo. In the interest of transparency, we could turn it into a game show, but nobody gets to leave the island. Each team of detainees can design the contest for the week. Watch as those wacky nuts waterboard each other.
