Life Imitates Art: A Novelist Could Not Do Better

Consider the great names of fictional characters such as Uriah Heep, Obediah Slope, Wilkins Micawber, Adrian Mole, Becky Sharp, Huckleberry Finn, and Ignatius J. Reilly.

If you were writing a novel, you could not do a better job of matching these names with their respective personalities:
  • The Reverend Al Sharpton
  • Anthony Weiner
  • Strom Thurmond
  • Chris Christie
  • Dick Durbin
  • George H. W. Bush
  • Bella Abzug
  • Lester Maddox
  • Whoopi Goldberg
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger
