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.)


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.
Please note: The postings of "G. Morris", written by John K. Bush and which end in 2016, stated his views as of the dates of posting and should not be understood as current assertions of his views. The postings, which have not been altered since they came to an end, remain on this blog to preserve the historical record. In 2017, Mr. Bush took a position that precludes further public political comments or endorsements. He will no longer be contributing to this blog.
