B is for bonehead & bonehead stands for Brooks & Buckley

Even though state school Sarah Palin, plebeian Joe the Plumber, and ESL Tito the Builder could all figure out that Barack "Spread the Wealth Around" Obama was a Socialist, primarily because Obama point blank said that he was, in fact, a socialist in his memoir:

In college, “I chose my friends carefully,” he said in his first book, Dreams From My Father.

These friends included “Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk rock performance poets” — in Obama’s own words — as well as the “more politically active black students.” He later visited a former member of the terrorist Weatherman Underground, who endorsed him when he ran for state senator.

the Ivy League RINO brigade ended up lost at a sea without a shroud.

Did Buckley and Brooks just vote for Obama because their names all contain the letter "B"? Was that the level of their analysis?

"Narcissism beyond Gestalt and awareness: the name letter effect"

Mere belongingness to self is tested as a sufficient condition for the enhancement of the attractiveness of visual letter stimuli. Experimental evidence is presented that, independent of visual, acoustical, aesthetic, semantic and frequency characteristics, letters belonging to own first and/or family name are preferred above not-own name letters. The effect is obtained in the absence of awareness of the Gestalt of any name, thus challenging current understanding of fundamental affective processes

"Name Letter Preferences Are Not Merely Mere Exposure: Implicit Egotism as Self-Regulation"
People prefer the letters in their own names to letters that are not in their own names. Furthermore, people prefer the numbers in their own birthdays to numbers not in their own birthdays. In this article we argue that these examples of implicit egotism are best conceptualized as the product of unconscious self-regulation processes rather than a result of mere exposure.

"Implicit Self-Esteem in Japan: Name Letters and Birthday Numbers"

In two studies, the authors attempted an implicit assessment of positive feelings attached to Japanese selves and found evidence for such feelings. Study 1 examined preference for Japanese alphabetical letters and found that letters included in one's own name were significantly better liked than the remaining ones. Further, an especially strong preference was expressed by male respondents for the first letters of their family names, and by female respondents for the first letters of their first names

Well, bonehead also contains the letter "B", as does Benedict Arnold, Bolshevik, and backstabber.

Chris Matthews shares an "H""I""S""M""A" with Barack Hussein Obama, as well as an "C" & "S" with Bosco, so perhaps he gets a tingle up both of his legs when he watches this politically incorrect historical Sesame Street clip on the letter "B":
