You’re a Republican. You’re trying to figure out how to bash the uber-popular Barack Obama. What to do?
Here’s the strategy one GOP operative has settled upon:
Pronounce Obama’s first name as Bar-eck (which echoes the way most Americans prounounce the last name of the current Egyptian President), and then emphasize Obama’s middle name, Hussein.
Presto! A black American Christian who was born in Hawaii and raised in Kenya becomes…. a scary Muslim.
