What's in a name?

I missed the Oscars on Sunday so didn't hear these comments from the American comedy host, Jon Stewart: "You have to give Barack Obama credit. His middle name is the last name of Iraq's former tyrant. His last name rhymes with Osama. That's not easy to overcome. I think we all remember the ill-fated 1944 presidential campaign of Gaydolf Titler. It's just a shame, Titler had so many good ideas. We just couldn't get past the name."

I particularly liked the Julie Christie joke - about a woman who forgets her husband " Hillary Clinton is calling it the feel-good movie of the year."

Was he bald as well? Isn't that supposed to be a handicap for male candidates too? I certainly do feel sorry for GT with a name like that, what a terrible handicap.

I missed that too so it has given me a chuckle to read it here, WW.
