Having the the dreaded middle name of Hussein (thankfully Adolf wasn't considered) seems to have been the only stumble facing Illinois Sen. Barack Obama. The press (except for those at the Fox News channel, of course) are falling all over themselves to christen Obama the candidate to beat in the Democratic primaries. He's getting rock-star receptions on the campaign trail (including here in Kansas City last fall).
So it should come as no surprise that Slate.com has done the only respectful thing for an investigative online outlet. They've created a Messiah watch page, seeking proof that Obama can literally walk on water. And already it's done an incredible service to its readers. Who knew Obama's nickname was Barry? Move over Barry Williams. You're no longer the cutest, cleanest Barry of the bunch.
