What is Chinese for "Nuts?"

Governing magazine's 13th Floor blog has an interesting post on the possibility that candidate's names will have to be translated into Chinese in predominantly Chinese American districts in Boston. And what will the names be? Here are a few possibilities:

Mitt Romney = "Sticky or Uncooked Rice"

Fred Thompson = "Virtue Soup"

Barack Obama = "Oh Bus Horse"

Boston Mayor Tom Menino = "Rainbow farmer"
