Flipping Obama the Middle Name ...

Posted: Aug 28, 2008 10:18 AM
The front page of the hard copy of today's New York Times includes two references to "Barack Hussein Obama".  One reference was actually a front page headline -- and the other reference was the first line from this front-page story.

I have not noticed many references to Obama's middle name recently (in fact, I thought we had all agreed it was not appropriate to mention it), and this struck me as unusual and interesting.  What's up???
