Prediction: He uses "9/11" in his speech at least a dozen times before he’s finished.At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

It's not "Bobby Jindal"? It is down in the text. Someone else said "Jindel" at the beginning, I guess.

He didn't change it, he is legally Piyush and that is what appeared on the ballot where he clobbered everyone else.
He says it's because he loved the Brady Bunch when he was a kid.

I have lots of customers who are Indian. They all adopt American names when they come here.
Harshad = Harry
Sharadkumar = Sonny
Bharakubhai = Andy
Those are a few. Unlike the prophet, who went by an American name, then changed to Barrack.I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad
