Spelling Woes

Remember when the media went nuts over Vice President Dan Quayle misspelling "potatoes"? Let's see how much mainstream coverage this post from The Hill generates:

Someone might want to look into whether an impostor took President Obama's place during his trip to Russia.

In a release touting an agreement between Obama and President Dmitry Medvedev over how to craft a follow-up to the START arms reduction treaty, the White House claimed the document had been signed by one "Barak Obama." (Emphasis added.)

Whoops.

I actually feel sorry for whoever made that mistake. It was probably some 40-something who is too proud to wear bifocals, and I sympathize.
