Today, LWOH pays unadulterated homage to the unrivaled, leading authority on all things The Lightbringer, Joseph Cannon of the one stop-shop for Obama fare, Cannonfire, as he unveils the true meaning behind the name "Barack Obama" in this post entitled "Bam!" Cannon
"strongly suspects that the name Obama derives from the Arabic wabama. In an earlier post, we discovered that "Barack" means lightning, or flash.Thus, "Barack Obama" means "Flash Fucker." I'm not kidding. You may, however, prefer the more Zeus-ian "Father of Lightning." Or maybe the more disco-fied "Electric Daddy."
