Republican strategist Ed Rogers appeared on "Hardball" Tuesday night and said this:
DAVID SHUSTER: Ed, Barack Obama‘s going up to New Hampshire. He‘s somebody I mentioned Republicans should be careful of. He‘s a great speaker...Here's This Week's Discussion Question:
ROGERS: Please, help me, David. Somebody that underestimates Barack Hussein Obama. Please. I mean, this man is a blank canvas where people project their desires and their ideal candidate because nobody knows anything about him. And he has a deep voice...
From this exchange, may we assume that you will be referring to all '08 presidential hopefuls by their full names?
(Here's a helpful list for you, Ed: Joseph Robinette Biden, Samuel Dale Brownback, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Rudolph William Louis Giuliani, John Sidney McCain, Willard Mitt Romney, Thomas James Vilsack, and the erstwhile candidacy of William Harrison Frist.)
We mean, you can't be singling out Sen. Obama simply because his middle name happens to be "Hussein," right?
Please keep the discussion civil and do not wander off into "Boy, every time you think these guys have gone as low as they can go, they dig another level" or "He forgot to mention that he was a member of the 'Democrat' party."
Update: How could we have forgotten Newton Leroy Gingrich?
