A recent encounter with a spamming attorney in our comments section dismayed me because she insists referring to Senator Barack Obama by his middle name of Hussein. There, I did it too. It is his middle name, and there's nothing wrong with it, but no one uses it because he likes the ring of "Hussein." They use it to imply that he's a terrorist-loving soft-on-Ba'athism fifth columnist Manchurian Candidate for radical Islam. And so it occurred to me, in a parallel world, where middle names reflected their owners' traits and flaws, what would Obama's middle name be?
It would be "Sunshine."
John McCain's middle name would be "Queeg."
Hillary Clinton's middle name would be "Evita."
Richard Nixon's middle name would have been "Milhous."
And so on and so forth.
