Here it is because SOME PEOPLE HERE ( ;) )can't stop yapping about it. Your very own thread to debate/whine/rage about people using "BHO" instead "BO" or typing out his whole name.

And to give equal time - those on the right can rage about initials being used.

IMO, it's silly that people feel the need to whine about using a person's initials. Well, not complaining about everyone's initials- just one set of initials in particular. It's rather sad that some people are so sensitive they see racism/ innuendo everywhere.... I thought the PC movement was shown to be stupid years ago....


Troll thread.

The silly PC movement, such as it was, died back ~1990 when that particular crop of poly-sci majors graduated and had to get jobs or into law school. It only lives on in the heads of rightwing blabbermouths.

As I mentioned in another thread, your posts would lose nothing by not implicitly attempting to shoehorn the name Hussein into them, and you would be freed of having to argue about initials with people in threads such as this. Everyone would win. I think you just like to fight.

Yesterday was McCain's worst polling day ever, according to FiveThirtyEight.com.

Every day, he comes out with a new Hail Mary play. Last week it was Ayers. He quickly abadoned that. Then it was Joe The Plumber and Socialism. Now he's attacking Bush instead of Obama.

Who the fuck is running McCain's campaign, and can we please get him to run every GOP Presidential campaign from now until eternity? Pretty please? ;)

Why do I have to change how I post just because you and some others are sensitive to Obama's middle name/initial?

I always used BHO and nobody gave me any grief.

I dont see what the big deal is.

You don't. See, that was easy.
