A New Way to Name Tropical Storms

 People are offended when a hurricane bearing his or her name causes massive devastation.  There has been a massive decline in girls named Katrina.  This proposal changes the naming of tropical systems from names of boys and girls to names of politicians.  Not only does it keep the self esteem of boys named Ike, but it also gives politicians what they have always wanted.  Something named after them.

In order to show bipartisan fairness, there are two lists alternating between Democrats and Republicans. 

  • The first tropical system will be named after Democrats in odd years and Republicans in even years. 
  •  The names shall alternate between parties.
  • New names shall be used as old politicians retire or die.
