Steve Sailer considers Obama; I consider another election of bland platitudes acting as an inadequate bandaid over seething resentment, a situation irritated more than ameliorated by the embarrassing antics of white liberals in one of their "At last! A black (or blackish) candidate we can approve of!" fests.

As for me, I am strangely cheered by the news that Al Sharpton is running for prez again. I may just vote for him. Sure, he's an idiot, and he'd ruin the country (or have a good time trying), but at least he doesn't have the Clean, Articulate Negro stamp of approval. Eight years of Clinton shows that having a sociopathic yet oddly charming liar in the highest office in the land bothers us not at all. Sure, we'd have a lot more terrorist attacks on our soil, but my fellow Americans have more than once indicated that they'd be glad to put up with a few corpses for cheap gas and go-along-to-get-along cred.

All we need is a Hussein in the White House. Barack Hussein Obama.

That's stupid. His name doesn't mean anything, except obviously cheap laughs ("Ooh, his middle name is Hussain! Sinister!") Unless you think that makes him automatically a member of the Secret Muslim Jihadi society. One drawback to that theory: Muslim jihadis haven't exactly been secret about their philosophies and intentions, so if he really was a Muslim we'd have heard about it from now. (Ad nauseum, like we have to hear about that guy in Minnesota.)

It never ceases to amaze me -- parents hang a name on their innocent little baby & no matter how "cool" it is at the time (Jennifer & Ashley come to mind), it becomes either a joke or a perceived threat somewhere in the future, something that bodes ill for us all. Uh-huh. The guy had NO control over that. He did NOT change it from John Doe TO Hussein Saddam Junior, it's what his parents gave as his MIDDLE name? Alarming. Yup.

I'm not going to vote for him, but I CAN imagine the hissy-fits of about 3/4 of the Nation and the World if he was ever elected! What fun!

"Hussein" is more or less a variation on "Hasan," which means something like "handsome." That in itself should indicate that it's No Big Deal - rather a lot of names in rather a lot of cultures translate to things equally vapid.

Don't worry, he's just chopping broccoli.
