I have to say, there is no other way to explain this other then its downright creepy:
Emily Nordling has never met a Muslim, at least not to her knowledge. But this spring, Ms. Nordling, a 19-year-old student from Fort Thomas, Ky., gave herself a new middle name on Facebook.com, mimicking her boyfriend and shocking her father.
With her decision, she joined a growing band of supporters of Senator Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, who are expressing solidarity with him by informally adopting his middle name.
The result is a group of unlikely-sounding Husseins: Jewish and Catholic, Hispanic and Asian and Italian-American, from Jaime Hussein Alvarez of Washington, D.C., to Kelly Hussein Crowley of Norman, Okla., to Sarah Beth Hussein Frumkin of Chicago.
Jeff Strabone of Brooklyn now signs credit card receipts with his newly assumed middle name, while Dan O’Maley of Washington, D.C., jiggered his e-mail account so his name would appear as “D. Hussein O’Maley.” Alex Enderle made the switch online along with several other Obama volunteers from Columbus, Ohio, and now friends greet him that way in person, too.
Of course they are actually only changing their name on Facebook, a online social network, which is the:
…digital equivalent of wearing a button with a clever, attention-getting message.
According to the New York Times.
I’m sorry, but a few hundred youths signing Hussein onto their Facebook page, or using it as their name on KOS or a number of other liberal websites, is just not the sign of a “movement.” As we saw in 2004, the youth in this country love causes, the wrong causes mind you, but causes none the less. But when it comes down to crunch time they are nowhere to be seen. The journey to the vote is what they enjoy…The trip, the party, the rallies, and all that.
The real question here is why is the fact that a few hundred people changed their digital names news?
If anything, the news is that the Obama “movement” is not a movement at all. It’s officially moved into cult category.
