Welcome Barack

[posted by Callimachus]

Among the little tidbits I learn in this look at Barack Hussein Obama's now-slightly controversial name is that he's a "junior" ("He is the son of the late Kenyan economist Barack Hussein Obama Sr."), his nickname used to be "Barry," and that Obama likes to joke he gets a lift from voters in heavily Irish-American Chicago because "people at first thought he was O’Bama."
