THEY LEFT SOME OUT! They forgot that he tuns water into milk and then eats kryptonite cereal every morning before he gets in his chariot and rides across the sky, creating a phenomenon mere mortals have dubbed: the sunrise.

His name means "one who is blessed" in Swahili

No, it means "one who is blessed" in Arabic, and the Arabs nicked the word from Hebrew.

No dope stories ? Losing his stash , unexpectedly finding a stash , getting burned when buying , sharing and selling , and relieving the inhibitions of those with whom you share dope . The hungry public wants to know , these great American tales must be told .

That one is actually not true.

He invented a ‘hitch’ that enables dumb donkeys to haul all his manure though.

Sounds fairly adolescent to me. The boy king. Oh wait, we mustn't use that term. Gee, we must be so very careful in picking the terms we use to discuss this...this...gee, I guess we can't discuss him at all, simply bow down and be thankful the multiCULTi jihadis don't behead us for not having voted for him.

His favourite book is Moby-Dick by Herman Melville

Hmmmmm. He loves a novel where a great white creature is stalked and killed by a maniac that looks like Abraham Lincoln.(at least in the movie) and drags its crew to its death in the meaningless pursuit.

Things that make you say "Hmmmmm"

Yes, and he hates white people just as much as Captain Ahab hated the white whale. Before he starts redistributing the wealth to his personal “chosen people,” he might want to undertake a careful reading of Moby Dick.

The boy’s name Hussein \hu(s)-sein\ is pronounced hoo-SAYN. It is of Arabic origin, and its meaning is “good; small handsome one”.

Check out this gem:

He carries a tiny Madonna and child statue and a bracelet belonging to a soldier in Iraq for good luck

That’s nice. Barry’s the one that needs luck. No need to think about the soldier the trinket belongs to. Ha! Bow to Barryack!

Well, actually, baraka means “blessed” in Swahili. As far as Arabic words being “nicked” from Hebrew, they are both Semitic languages and have a number of cognates.

I guess what I meant to ask was, I wonder what it means that the MSM will now call attention to one of his foreign-sounding names but issued and still enforces a strict prohibition against acknowledging the other.

I’m finding some thing I like here. For example, love of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and hatred of saggy pants.

But he doesn’t drink coffee. I don’t trust him.

He only benches 200? That is underwhelming. Sheesh. if he works out at all, he should be well past that. Guy I work with is over 50 and is benching in the high 300’s. Brrrack (err, ‘scuse me for belching) is only 47.

“....Daughter Malia’s godmother is Jesse Jackson’s daughter Santita...”

Michelle used to babysit for the Jackson kids.

Call me cynical, but he was probably at first attracted to her political connections as much as anything else (just like Wright, Ayers, etc...)

Me thinks the whole issue of Jesse “unknowingly” speaking into the hot-microphone and wanting to cut his nuts off was a political stunt.
