I hadn't heard about this before, but apparently it's all the rage in some conservative circles to refer to John McCain as "Juan McCain." It's Glenn Beck, but it's not just Beck by any means.

Meanwhile, millions of Americans have Spanish names. You can meet us in your neighborhoods or even read our blogs. It's sad to think someone somewhere might be calling Matt Church by my name as some kind of diss.
