Abstract

The National Committee for Honest Political Naming (L.R.N. Ashley, President and Chief Executive Officer) is a one-member, one-issue organization dedicated to exposing what The New Republic called in its 1 Sep 1986 issue viewspeak, defined as "the increasingly popular trick of disguising your own self-interest in the rhetoric of public interest." The rule is the more partisan the Political Action Committee (PAC), the less partisan-sounding its name. The difference between the names of the lobbying groups and what they are up to suggested this little quiz. See if you can guess the concern of each group of lobbyists from their official name. If you do, you are eligible to join Onomastic Honesty-Observant Heroes (OH-OH).
