"South Carolina State Senator Kevin Bryant has removed a classy photo from his website," wrote Nico Pitney. The photograph showed "Osama Bin Laden next to Barack Obama with text claiming the difference between them is 'just a little B.S.'"
Switching a letter in Obama's name was child's play. Try, for instance, spelling it backwards:
AMABO. This is the Latin word for "I shall love." What is the difference between OBAMA and AMABO? -- Just a matter of time.
Scamble Obama, and you have BAMOA. Bamoa is a town in Sinaloa, Mexico. To link OBAMA and BAMOA is to hear new rustlings of the "giant sucking noise" of NAFTA.
Truly uncanny is a scrambled form of Joe Biden's last name. BENDI is Swahili for "band" or "orchestra." Swahili and English are the official languages of Kenya, the birthplace of Barak Obama's father. This can only mean that Joe Biden has hopped onto the political bandwagon of the Obama campaign.
Under the Republican tent, the CAIN part of John McCain's last name spells out I CAN. A defiant reply to Obama's slogan, "Yes, we can."
But PALIN -- alas! -- scrambles out to PLAIN.
These verbal tea leaves have been read over the many years of American politics. That enormously plump president, William Howard Taft, has a name that, spelled backwards, is TFAT.
Some other scattered presidential names to ponder:
• MONROE = ENORMO (Ego?)
• PIERCE = RECIPE (For disaster?)
• HAYES = YESHA (Name for the areas taken by Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War -- there should be something in Nostradamus to explain this.)
• WILSON = IN SLOW
• HARDING = DARING H
• WASHINGTON = TSONG-HINAW ("Great White Father" in some Indian language or another. If you don't believe me, look it up.)
• BUSH = HUB(RI)S
• CARTER = CRATER
• REAGAN = AN AGER
Theodore Roosevelt may not have the best name for scrambling, but one of the best palindromes in English describes an accomplishment of the Rough Rider:
A MAN A PLAN A CANAL PANAMA.
