Obama

"Barry from DC"

Tim Kaine, the outgoing Democratic governor of Virginia (and current chair of the Democratic National Committee), was on DC's WTOP FM this morning when a "Barry from DC" called in to the show. Here's video:

Barry, otherwise known as President Barack Obama, had some "questions about traffic in Northern Virginia," but mostly focused on praising Kaine. The American Prospect's Tim Fernholz tweets that he's "torn between thinking this is hilarious and thinking Obama has other things to do." I just think the president shouldn't bait the birthers by referring to himself as "Barry." That's just mean.
