Andy Partridge Fuzzy Warbles Collector's Album Contest

Andy Partridge released a box set of his Fuzzy Warbles albums in the US last week. All eight of the Fuzzy Warbles discs are included in the Fuzzy Warbles Collector's Album, as is a special bonus disc, Hinges, of outtakes available only with the box set.

Some of my favorite XTC and Andy Partridge songs have a political bend. Songs like "The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead," "Here Comes President Kill Again," "Sergeants and Majors," and "Melt the Guns" are as relevant today as the day they were written. With mid-term elections less than a week away in the United States, I figured a contest with a political bent is in order.

To enter, add a comment to this post with a nickname for the current United States president. The winner will be announced November 7th (election day), and all comments must be in by midnight (EST) Monday, November 6th.
