By Any Other Name - The American Spectator | USA News and Politics
By Any Other Name

I’m watching the Sunday morning yak yak shows and am amused by the debate on whether it is or isn’t underhanded and vile (not to mention racist, fascist, sexist, homophobic, fill in anything I’ve forgotten here) to reference the leading Democratic contender as Barack Hussein Obama, which is, in fact, his name.

I’m composing a note to the McCain campaign advising JMcC to issue a press release along these lines: “In an attempt not to insult the likely Democratic candidate, I will immediately cease calling him by his real name. Henceforth and hereafter when I speak of him I will refer to him as Joe Jones. Happy now?”
