Obama Campaign Complains About Use of Middle Name
AZCONSERVATIVE ^ | 1 March 2008 | John Semmens

Posted on 03/02/2008 7:18:42 PM PST by John Semmens

Drawing a parallel to the publication of cartoons of Mohammed, a spokesman for Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, denounced use of the candidate’s middle name—Hussein—as “dirty politics.”

“Inserting Senator Obama’s middle name into public discourse is just as wrong as it would be to publish an image of the Prophet Mohammed (may peace be upon him),” said Fetid Miasma, deputy chairman of Obama’s Texas campaign. “It’s mocking his heritage at a time when we should all be coming together as one.”

“We’re not going around saying Hillary RODHAM Clinton,” Miasma pointed out, noting that, “We are above the pettiness of pointing out that Senator Clinton’s middle name has the word ‘ham’ in it and that this could greatly hamper our country’s dealings with Muslim nations should she become president.”

Maybe he should just go by Barack H Obama — like Harry S Truman — his family can argue with each other as to what the H really stands for —

When I read the title to this thread, my first thought was he should take it up with his parents, after all they named him.

I know they’re dead. ;)

All I can figure out is that there was a flagpole that they were looking at. Go figure.

No, no, I think they are so blinded by liberalism that they can't even find the REALLY BIG FLAG behind them!

Please - your satire is way too life like.

Its confusing.

Like that satire pretend-debate that CNN did in Ohio, where they acted just like it was an SNL skit and went totally in the tank for Obama. LOL. Good satire, except their Hillary character (who was really good imitator, btw) kept complaining too much about it. Kind of ruined the humor.

BARACK HUSSEIN
Tune: "Danke Schoen"

Barack Hussein, call him Barack Hussein
Claim the name for the fall campaign
Muslim roots, no need to explain
It's a change of plan, no more ban
Yes we can say Hussein

Barack Hussein, call him Barack Hussein
Use it more, no I'm not insane
Don't delete, it won't mean defeat
If we just convince--please don't wince
Lather, rinse, and repeat

Barack Hussein, call him Barack Hussein
Pop the cork, time to drink champagne
I predict change will happen quick
Names in Arabic, take your pick
Soon will click, do the trick

Barack Hussein, call him Barack Hussein
Middle name, least it isn't Wayne
Though it hangs like a thunder cloud
Never mind the crowd, say it loud
Say it proud, Barack Hussein

Barack Hussein, oh call him Barack Hussein
I said, middle name, least it isn't Wayne
Though it hangs like a thunder cloud
Never mind the crowd, say it loud
Say it proud, Barack Hussein

Barack Hussein, name like McCain, Barack Hussein
