At the Jersey Shore, Everybody Has a Nickname. Even San Francisco Politicians
|Meet 'The Ashley Simpson of Cape May' and 'Sookie'|
We don't have answers to these questions, but we do have a slate of monikers for our politicians-cum-guidos, courtesy of the Jersey Shore Nickname Generator. As fans of the show know, every character has his or her own handle. There's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino -- thus named because his abs are so toned as to present a situation -- and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, who is often erroneously called "Snickers" by her housemates. We decided to plug in the names of our local pols to see what this lovable cast of characters would be calling themselves on the Jersey Shore. Here you go.
