My 4-year daughter can’t say or hear “Barack Obama” without laughing…

Turns out he really does have a funny name. My wife and I can’t say it in front of her without her bursting into uncontrollable laughter.

The little PC cop in my brain wonders if disclosing this is some kind of racist “dog whistle” the left likes to crow about.

Of course it isn’t. My daughter doesn’t really get the concept of race, much less actually express it. Yet, liberals will find racism in a turkey sandwich if you give them enough time to find the right “trigger” for it.

The truth is I don’t even think my daughter realizes it’s the name of an actual person. In saying that I realize that now liberals probably think I’m dehumanizing him. I’m not, he has done enough of that for himself.

She certainly doesn’t understand politics or the concept of what a president is…which frankly puts her uncomfortably close to actually having something in common with him.

Meanwhile, my brother wants to know why we’re letting a 4-year old use swear words.
