I heard an interview on NPR yesterday with the guy who has made the speech introducing McCain where he said "Barack Hussen Obama" multiple times. His defense was one of the greatest insults to my intelligence that I have ever heard from an interviewee. He was trying to claim that he meant nothing at all by it, that it was just the innocent use of his middle name, and he tried to draw a link to the use of middle names in presidents past. Robert Siegel pointed out that on his radio show, he had called him "Barack Hussein Muhammad Obama". He claimed that he had read that on a website and it was just an honest mistake. It was an incredible display of bullshiting.

If Obama wins the nomination, then we have not seen the last of this, not by a long shot.
