Robocall trashes "Barack Hussein Obama"
The Obama campaign has released a recording (mp3) it says came from a Nevadan's answering machine of an anonymous robocall that criticizes Obama for taking money from special interests while repeating, four times, his rarely used middle name: "Hussein."
"I'm calling with some important information about Barack Hussein Obama," the call begins, before saying that "Barack Hussein Obama says he doesn't take money from Washington lobbyists or special interest groups but the record is clear that he does."
After mentioning his full name once more, the call concludes:
"You just can't take a chance on Barack Hussein Obama."

Blogger notes: This selected comment is hilarious. Hope you enjoy it too.
I personally have, to be fair, begun to use the candidates' full names. Equal opportunity, you know.

Hillary Diane Clinton!
John Reid Edwards!
Rudolph William Louis Giuliani!
John Sidney McCain III!
Michael Dale Huckabee!
Freddie Dalton Thompson (serious, this is on his birth certificate!)
Willard Mitt Romney!
Ronald Ernest Paul!
Now really, how about we start calling Hillary "Hillary Diane" and Fred "Freddie Dalton" or Rudy "Rudolph William Louis" or Mitt (already weird) "Willard Mitt"? It's only fair!
