"...and a parasitic hairworm, "paragordius obamai," an all-female species that is able to reproduce without a male. It was discovered in Kenya, the land of Mr. Obama's father." http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/aug/21/obama-tribute-sparks-backlash-in-new-jersey-town-o/

As a retired parasitologist, I am disgusted that an honest parasitic worm, just trying to make it in this tough world, is named after such a lowly creature. It is an insult to the Parasite Community!!

That's sort of an upgrade for him. I always thought they'd name a bacteria or spore base life form after him.

Parasite: an organism that lives in or on another organism (its host) and benefits by deriving nutrients at the host's expense.

Does this not define your typical Obama supporter? I think it was quite fitting to name this organism after the king of all parasites. FUBO
