I'm working on the Outpost calendar and listening to Bill Cunningham on talk radio. Every time he refers to Barack Obama, he refers to him as "Barack Hussein Obama." I see that Rush Limbaugh is doing the same thing. And now What's Right in Montana is picking it up.
It's similar to, although worse than, Republicans' habit of referring to their opposition as the "Democrat Party" rather than by its actual name, which is the Democratic Party (nobody ever refers to the Republic Party).
Hussein is part of Obama's actual name, of course, but it isn't the name he uses. In fact, none of the candidates in the presidential primaries goes by first and middle name, and Obama is the only one referred to that way.
By the age of 5 or 6, most Americans learn to refer to people by the names they use to refer to themselves. Some Americans never grow up.
