What do McCain, Palin, and Obama have in common? They are all linked through the Arab language. Barack Hussein Obama isn’t the only one with an affinity for Arabic. Both McCain’s father and grandfather were Navy Admirals, and as we all know, the word “admiral” in English is derived from the Arabic “Amir al bahar” meaning “the prince of the sea”.
And guess what small town U-S-A town means “affinity” in Arabic? You got it, Wasilla. I wonder if Fox News will now start referring to Palin’s tiny mayoral caliphate as having an affinity with the Arab world each and every time they allude to her extensive down-home qualifications and values, just as they do with Barack Hussein.
