Even though I voted for McKinney, I really dislike this nasty habit some Republicans have of calling Obama by his middle name -- as if Hussein was somehow a 'bad' name. Or a scary name. Or something like that. It's really, really distasteful, and shows just how petty, small-minded and ignorant many Republicans are.

Hussein, in Arabic, means "good," or "handsome." [source: Wikipedia] Doesn't sound that scary to me.

So, from now until the election, my name is Kevyn Hussein Jacobs.

Grow up, Americans.

(Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] tianas_knife for pointing this movement out to me on Facebook!)
