Arkansas Baby Named for Obama

Si se puede!
Si se puede!

Here’s an AP report on people naming their babies for President-elect Barack Obama. Among the early adopters: Walter and Adria Kimbrough of Little Rock (he’s president of Philander Smith College), whose son Benjamin Barack Kimbrough was born on Election Day.

I understand people are excited, but this is moving awfully fast. Let’s remember that Obama was only elected three days ago, and hasn’t been sworn in or, you know, done anything yet, so the flush to hero worship seems a little hasty. At this rate, I expect someone will be seeing his face in a tortilla by about this time next week.

    Yeah, let’s not forget about those unfortunate 34 year olds out there named Gerald, who were named during the overwhelming excitement of the Ford Administration.
