ESPN Covered for Obama
Potato should have an 'e' on the end. Well, if you live in Philly it should anyway. And it does have an 'e' if it's plural --and plural is probably the only way you'd ever need to write it. You wouldn't have a single potato on your shopping list.
So adding an 'e' to the end of potato isn't that big of a deal...and certainly doesn't warrant becoming the defining moment of a Vice Presidency. But it did.
Yet, Obama butchers 'Syracuse' (which is basically a phonetic spelling)...and not only do you hear nothing about it, but ESPN went as far as to edit it out!
Our illustriously academic leader wrote, "Sycasuse" while making his March Madness selections. How is adding an 'e' to potato worse than that? Sycasuse? Really? Free wouldn't even butcher it that bad!
How is it that the collective media can cast each and every Republican in office as a rube without any pang of conscience?
Hot Air has the whole story complete with videos.
(I realize this happened almost two weeks ago, but I didn't really think much about it until last night when I was doing letter sounds with the baby...)
