This Might Work

I kind of like this idea. A reader at Andrew Sullivan's blog wrote in suggesting a way to diffuse the right wing's use of Obama's middle name as an attack:

Recall how football players shave their heads in solidarity with a teammate who's going through chemo? What the Democrats need to do, should Obama become the nominee, is to use Hussein as their adopted middle names. Ted Hussein Kennedy. Nancy Hussein Pelosi. Hillary Hussein Clinton. (Well, maybe not.) And his supporters, too. This is something that can easily go viral and backfire on the far right big-time.

Then again, with the current crop of wingnuts, they might see this "proof" that Islamofascists have infiltrated the government, and call up their militias to start another civil war.

Yeah, I'm afraid they're just looking for a reason to impose martial law...
