On Friday, in the grand tradition of politicians seeking to capitalize on a cultural moment, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) introduced a bill aimed at reducing the number of "trophy killings" of African wildlife. This, of course, was in response to last week's news that a Minnesota dentist had killed a lion in Zimbabwe after it was lured out of its habitat -- the killing that launched a million thinkpieces.

Menendez cobbled together an apt acronym for his measure. The bill is titled, "Conserving Ecosystems by Ceasing the Importation of Large Animal Trophies Act." Or, the CECIL Act.

Get it? Of course you get it. (Oh, you actually don't? It was the name of the lion. And welcome back to Earth.)

Politicians love acronyms. Love them. Like medicines that bear the scientific name of hexaflourodiazeprine but are marketed as Happinex, politicians give bills acronyms to make them easier to remember and refer to -- and, sometimes, easier to swallow. So far in this Congress, still less than a year old, there have been over 350 acronym-bills introduced in the House and Senate.

And we know this, because we ranked them all by quality.

There are several qualities that make a good acronym-bill. The acronym should be:

1. Clever. The best acronym bills manipulate the bill title in ways that are clever. Menendez's bill is pretty clever, winding up with the name of our poor deceased friend. A not-clever title is one that isn't a good joke or smart play on words. And the worst offenders?

2. Unique. There are, according to the Library of Congress, 2.6 trillion bills called the FAIR Act. There are 1.9 trillion called SAFE or HOME or FACT or TRUST. In part thanks to the letters they contain and in part thanks to the messages they send, these are go-tos used over and over. Which partly defeats the purpose: If I say I back the FAIR Act, even the most knowledgeable observer would have to ask which one.

3. Topical. A good acronym links back to the subject at hand. Like: CECIL.

4. Unforced. Politicians like to try and be clever, in all things at all times. Often, in an attempt to craft a nice, 12-letter acronym, they have their staffers up late into the night perusing thesauruses to try and figure out what that "X" should be. The best acronyms feel natural. CECIL almost gets there.

5. Perhaps the most important rule is this: Using the acronym itself as the first letter of the acronym should result in impeachment. If you are writing the HOME Act, and the letters stand for "Home Obliteration Measures for Enforcement," your acronym is bad, and you should feel bad.

Those were the guidelines that informed the ranking below. Here is something that won't surprise you! The members of Congress who had more acronym-bills on the list often were the ones that had lower average scores for the quality of their acronyms. The more you struggle to craft acronyms, the worse they are. (All of the names and sponsors come from GovTrack.us. Some duplicate bills in the House and Senate were removed.)

Here's the list. Lazy/bored? Jump to the top 10. But, really, please take time to appreciate how bad many of these are.


365. FOIA Act - FOIA Oversight and Implementation Act of 2015. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.)

Not clever. Uses the word itself as the first letter of the acronym. Boo.

364. SCAN Act - Scan Containers Absolutely Now Act. Rep. Janice Hahn (D-Calif.)

Honestly, if you thought this one was worse, given the awkward introduction of "absolutely," we'd be hard pressed to object.

362. CARERS Act of 2015 - Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States Act of 2015. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.)

Where is the acronym, though.
