    No. Alliteration usually happens at the beginning of several words in a series of words. Also, I only hear one "er" sound in this, but that may just be a regional thing or something.

    Edit: oh. the "dr." is the other "er" sound. Ha. I get it now. It still isn't an alliteration, though.

    Nope. Alliteration is "The occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words." -- http://www.google.ca/#hl=en&sclient=psy-ab&q=allit...

    Here are some examples:

    Susan Sontag

    Sam Spade

    Silly solipsistic sap

    Witty women walking westward

    Terrible twos

    Temping tasty treats

    Big-boned baby

    Yummy yoghurt
