Celebrities are notorious for changing their names to more appealing ones all the time, but political figures can't always do that for fear of appearing phony. (God forbid.) That's probably how we ended up with politicians named Schmuck, Assman and Boner (yes, there's a Boehner and a Boner).
Unfortunate politician names can be cringe-worthy, but they can also be hilarious. Just check out the 32 awesomely bad names of political figures below to see what we mean.
