Brain Dead in O-I-H-O

Brain Dead in O-I-H-O

Ed Driscoll

Bless his heart.

Having had to deal with the Thomas Eagleton veep freakout last week and his own Kerry in the bunnysuit moment yesterday, it’s time for Mr. Obama to commit 2012′s equivalent of the Dan Quayle “Potatoe” gaffe today:


Naturally, the Washington Post rushed to defend their candidate’s gaffe, as Charlie Spiering of the Washington Examiner notes:

An embarrassing photo of President Obama trying to spell Ohio with a group of students was snagged by Buzzfeed this afternoon, as Zeke Miller posted two different photos of the incident on their website.

Many Romney supporters quickly tweeted the photo, joking that the President didn’t know how to spell Ohio.

The Washington Post quickly posted a defense of the president claiming that the erroneous photo had been photoshopped. They also believed that they had caught Mitt Romney Ohio spokesman Christopher Maloney for erroneously tweeting the photo.

It got worse from there, before the Post finally backed off the ledge.

If it was a film negative, you could flop it and make it right.

It is correct on the “stage”, as the “I” is to Obamas right. But the audience sees it the other way.

For Mr. On-the-Down-Low, Bathhouse Barry, the formulation is correct. He’s just trolling for business:

At least "potato" has more than four letters. And Dan Quayle never pretended to be a Harvard graduate whose IQ made Einstein look like a dunce.

Obama is not just a pansy socialist, he's a boob. Nice job, Democrats. Thanks for foisting this embarrassment off on us.

I caught that early on. It’s amazing what one can do to a photo with something as simple as a smartphone.

He is spelling it right to left, just like any other Muslim who knows that you read Arabic right to left.

Be careful. In this day and age, that statement will more than likely be branded as racist.

“Hussein is left handed.
Which wrist does Hussein wear his watch on?”

Why so eager to believe Hussein isn’t indeed such a moron?

I caught the wristwatch and shirt issues HOURS ago on another thread here — you can check that.

And you could have also looked up photos of Hussein wearing a watch before pointedly assuming he wore it on the other hand because he is left-handed.

Are you a HUSSEIN HEAD?
