250_mccain.500.jpgWith right wing surrogates constantly making political use of Barack Obama’s middle name Hussein and maintaining how elitist he is, it’s interesting to note that the foreign born, Republican presidential candidate never uses his full, elite-sounding, legal name: John Sidney McCain III. For a guy touting his family’s past military credentials, you’d think he was proud of being named after his grandaddy and father, both “distinguished” admirals in the Navy, yet he NEVER utilizes his “III” name suffix. It’s not even on the about section of his campaign’s website that details the McCain family background. To be fair, it could have slipped his mind, he still thinks Czechoslovakia is a country after all.
