POTUS, Starring Barack Obama as Lorenzo Lamas…

The Secret Service must be big fans of Renegade, a ridiculously campy mid-90s TV show starring Lorenzo Lamas as a bounty hunter. Here’s a screenshot:

I’m basing this on the fact that, according to this story, “Renegade” is the Secret Service-assigned code name of President-elect Barack Obama.

I cannot begin to imagine why they would pick this moniker, given what the term means according to Webster’s:

1 : a deserter from one faith, cause, or allegiance to another
2 : an individual who rejects lawful or conventional behavior

Even more interesting is what is found in the Wikipedia entry for “Renegade”,

Renegade (Middle Ages), a term for a fallen Christian or a knight without allegiance.

To quote Disney’s March Hare (below), “Verrrrry interesting…”
