President Barack McObama

Apparently our President has Irish roots.  Unlike the Queen, he did drink the ale.  Someone needs to do his geneology.

I thought it was O'Bama!

I like the O'Bama because I can never remember whether Mac––––– or Mc––––– is Irish or Scottish --- and I've seen blows thrown when the wrong one was used.

Mc is Irish and Mac is Scottish, I grew up with a Dad from Scotland, and there were blows (at least verbally) if you got it wrong.  Mom was from Ireland, need I say more.  I still like McObama.  Shades of President Kennedy?
