Not only does that phrase just sound funny, but it also leads me to imagine W. being bald.

While checking up on how well my Dad's campaign website is indexing on the different search engine websites, I stumbled upon this story that mentions someone with a name about as close to 'Brendan McKillip' as you can get.
