Hussein in the membrane

News heads have been talking about Cincinnati radio host Bill Cunningham referring to Barack Hussein Obama as "Barack Hussein Obama." Most of the talk ... and writing in print and on blogs ... has focused on what Arizona Senator John Sidney McCain, III, did in response.

You see, Cunningham was warming up the crowd at a McCain campaign appearance when he called Barack Hussein Obama by the name "Barack Hussein Obama" not once, not twice, but three times.

Yes, three times Willie referred to Barack Hussein Obama as "Barack Hussein Obama."

And Senator McCain has caught some flack about it.

No, not because Cunningham referred to Barack Hussein Obama as "Barack Hussein Obama," but because McCain apologized for Cunningham calling Barack Hussein Obama by the name "Barack Hussein Obama" at a McCain rally.

The New York Times reported McCain distanced himself from Cunningham's comments:

"It's my understanding that before I came in here a person who was on the program before I spoke made some disparaging remarks about my two colleagues in the Senate, Senator Obama and Senator Clinton," he said. "I have repeatedly stated my respect for Senator Obama and Senator Clinton, that I will treat them with respect. I will call them 'Senator.' We will have a respectful debate, as I have said on hundreds of occasions. I regret any comments that may have been made about these two individuals who are honorable Americans."

I'm not going to pile on Senator McCain. If the Senator feels that Barack Hussein Obama should not be referred to as "Barack Hussein Obama" then people at McCain-sponsored events should not call Barack Hussein Obama by the name "Barack Hussein Obama."

I certainly understand and respect Senator McCain's wishes that Barack Hussein Obama not be called "Barack Hussein Obama," and I won't do it at any McCain campaign event.

But how do I personally feel about Barack Hussein Obama being referred to as "Barack Hussein Obama?"

I can sum it up in three words: Barack Hussein Obama.


  1. I always heard his name was Barry "Dick Durbin's Boy" Obama. Well, it's what I heard.

  2. I don't care what you call him--his supporters appear to think his name is Jesus.

  3. Blogs Blogging McCain...

    With the great news that John McCain is the official nominee of the Republican Party I thought it was appropriate to do a round-up of Blogs blogging about McCain.
