Dan Quayle was given a card with the “correct” spelling of the word potato. The error was on the card. It could have been coincidence, it could have been a setup. How many people are so certain of the spelling of the word potato that they would disbelieve a card that they are told with certainty is the correct spelling of the word potatoe?

Are you going to spellcheck the cards in advance to make sure nobody is handing you an incorrect spelling? It would have been a good idea, because he might have been our next president at that time, rather than Bill Clinton. But I’m sure he trusted the people who were handling him at the time.

Maybe we can go through all of your previous posts and find one misspelling, then start a thread about how you misspelled such an easy word.

In the same position, I can’t say I would have noticed the spelling error on the card, and I pride myself on my extensive vocabulary, superior linguistic capability, and impeccable spelling. So cut Mr. Quayle some slack. Don’t help the leftist media to defame our people.
