Fox networks should be getting the copyright, they were making this 'mistake' on air after Obama announced his candidacy. (That, and Barack Osama). He's not even original.

Obama, Osama... same thing. The only difference is one wears a suit and wants to redistribute wealth to destroy America while the other wears a turbin and wants to redistribute weapons to destroy America.

What the hell kind of a person would do something like that - for a flippin' LAUGH? Are you kidding me? That's a damn shame. Maybe he should have been flogged with an extension cord.

Let's face it, this guys real motive was to trademark the name so that he could bring suit against anybody that mistakenly used it in either print or broadcast. The Trademark office made the correct call this time.

I see nothing wrong with trademarking the name. After all, we are nothing more than corporate prostitutes in this nation.
