Obama and Romney Born Again!
At first glance, the title of this article may cause you to picture Barack and Mitt standing in a river, white robes flowing, waiting for a minister to dunk them in the cool water and baptize them.
Such is not the case.
What I’m actually referring to is a recent development in the country where Obama’s father was born, Kenya.
Wednesday morning, 20-year-old Millicent Owuor gave birth to twins close to the village of Kogelo in south-west Kenya. Kogelo is the actual village where Obama’s father was born.
For whatever reason, Owuor decided to name her twins after the presidential candidates. She now has Barack Obama Owuor (BOO) and Mitt Romney Owuor (I can’t think of a good nickname for him since Mitt serves the purpose).
Reuters reported that a number of babies born at the same hospital were named Obama, but this is the first Romney baby to be born in Kenya.
I wonder how Mitt would feel knowing his namesake is a young African boy?
