While I’ll root for Nader for president (unless Ron changes his mind), because he is genuinely antiwar, I’ll also cheer the slightly less warlike Obama over the war-lunatic McCain. But since when did using a candidate’s middle name become a hate crime? If a guy has a “funny” middle name, like Robert Strange McNamara or Richard Milhous Nixon, you really cannot expect opponents to abstain. Or does it mean a lessening of anti-Muslim prejudice? (Obama is a Protestant, not a Muslim, but his middle name is.) I’d like to think so, but it really just seems to be another part of the PC wet blanket that diminishes American discourse.2:47 pm on February 28, 2008 Email Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
