Skip to comments.Pistol-packing lawmaker deserves a high-caliber nickname
Posted on 12/11/2012 5:05:22 AM PST by rellimpank
What's worse for a distinguished, pro-gun-control Chicago politician who sports a cool goatee and an always-natty wardrobe:
Being charged with a felony after allegedly trying to carry a .25-caliber Beretta handgun onto a Chicago plane bound for Washington?
Or to suffer as readers and radio talk show callers showered him Thursday with endearing sometimes snarky nicknames?
(Excerpt) Read more at chicagotribune.com ...
Since most of us don’t feel like registering to the Trib, how about somebody spill the nickname?
"He shouldn't have carried it in the garment bag," said Lisa from Glen Ellyn, a gun enthusiast and shooter who ridiculed his tiny weapon. "He should have had it in a sequined fuchsia clutch. Something with a little pop."Slap!
.25-caliber is a HIGH-caliber????

Sen. Donne ‘Dangerously’ Trotter
Sen. Donne “Tiny Pistol” Trotter
“Let’s call him ‘Big Shooter,’” Jake Hartford said
“Donne Dead-Eye Trotter,” said one caller.
“Dinky Donne” or “Pea Shooter Trotter,” said another.
Others offered “Pop Gun” Trotter, “Police Blotter” Trotter, “Almost Conceal Carry” Trotter and “Dead Eye” Trotter.

Lots of possibilities given.
Donne “Mouse Fart” Trotter
I like - Donne Dumbass Trotter
Garter gun Trotter.
“Garter gun Trotter.”
We have a possible winner here. Let’s see if we can beat that, although it will be diffcult.
Boy, that one leaves a mark.
.25 cal.? Maybe he should be known as “Angry Quarter-Inch”
However, this is a connected Chicago Democrap and if anything comes of this “mistake”, it will be a resume enhancement when he gets out of federal prison (if Obama permits it to go that far). Most likely a fine and a slap on the wrist for the “connected” politician.
Trotter said “I thought it was a lighter. I bought it to light my crack pi... I mean birthday candles”.
How about Sheriff Bart Trotter.’Scuse me while I whip this out.
Since he was carrying a .25-caliber Beratta (probably a Minx) I vote that his new nickname should be:
Donne "Two Bits" Trotter.
I see that the competition is heating up. Wow, you guys are good.
The two-bit twit.
With a 25 caliber pistol I would call him poodle shooter per Bob the Nailer.
“Two Bits” ...
I used that term at work, and the new hires (25 year-old engineers) didn’t know what it meant.
So I had to explain Pieces-of-Eight and chopping them up, etc.
I’m not sure they wanted to know.
Maybe going metric would help i.e., 6.35 mm
Just what the hell passes for history in schools these days?
Name him for the ammo round he most resembles: Dum dum.
How about Donne “Too Small” Trotter?
It has a nice ring to it.
Actually, that same Beretta in .22LR is more reliable, and believe it or not, more powerful, than the .25ACP.
