Holy Dan Quayle! Palin's spelling now suspect
A letter came in the mail today to my wife.
It was from Gov. Sarah Palin asking for donations to her historic campaign. But my wife, who taught English composition at Purdue University, caught a big mistake by someone who can afford any gaffe this late in the race for the White House.
If you read the letter above, you'll see a new spelling for the word "Wednesday". Former VP Dan "Potatoe" Quayle must have been typing the letter.
Alas, here is another mishandling of the GOP VP nominee. And this one is really embarrassing.
Jay Leno joked tonight about press reports that say Palin has gone rogue. That's all right. But it becomes a problem when you've gone illiterate -- as in the letter.
We live in a conservative county in Tennessee. So Palin and her entourage thought someone such as my wife might be for the moose-huntin', Saks Fifth Avenue wearin' conservative beauty queen from the North Country.
Not unless she and her staff discover a dictionary.
