    Hey, did you know that “Aytu?” is “McCain” in Turkish?  A cousin, perhaps?  His first name is “Yüksel,” and that’s no joke!

    With Obama’s edicts on immigration and welfare reform, he’s looking more like Hugo Chavez every day.  I don’t really blame him with sticking with his ideological soul mate – in fact, I think they should hang together.
