What's That Name Again?


Who'd have ever thought we'd have a president named Barack?

I thought we'd have somebody named Gary or Larry before we had somebody like Wadi, or Jehosaphat, or Jerzy, or N'gambo.

Earlier presidents didn't have names like Mike or Gary.

Gary Washington

Mike Fillmore

Larry Lincoln

In fact, I thought we'd probably have a Larry or a Gary before we had a Susan. And I thought we'd have a Susan before we had a Barack.

Funny, I always thought we'd have a Barack before we had a Susan, unless the Susan was a Barack, which of course means the candidate's real first name would have been Oprah.

So, Grace, will you resume your public persona on Nov. 5?
