What was all that hubbub about the name "Hussein"?

"Well, I think if you've got a guy named Barack Hussein Obama, that's a pretty good contrast to George W. Bush."

Who said that? Answer: Barack Obama, PBS's Tavis Smiley Show, October 18, 2007. (Link.)

But no one else say it, hear? You'll be stirring up "ethnic animosities" and "unconscious prejudices." Or some nonsense like that.
