Lost in Translation

The American political scene is rife with hilarious names like Dick Armey, Mike Crapo and Orrin "G." Hatch, but sometimes you just have to go overseas to find a truly unfortunate political name. May I present to you Turkish politician Ufuk Uras:

I notice that he's set up shop at ufukuras.net, probably because ufukuras.com was already taken. Of course Dick Cheney has dibs on ufukurself.gov.

But now to the real question at hand: did our unfortunately-named candidate win a seat in the Turkish parliament in last month's elections? Ubet uras he did.
