From the Anchoress, an absolutely delicious observation about the linguistic ability of Our Dear Leader:
These great unwashed hillbillies, they’re pretty slick with teh sarcasm…
President Obama explained us to us as follows:
And so part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument does [sic] not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we’re hard-wired not to always think clearly when we’re scared. And the country is scared, and they [sic] have good reason to be.
Just my unwashed observation: We have a president who knows what our brains are hardwired to do and can describe the emotional state of an entire country, but he can’t get subject and verb to agree and pronoun and antecedent to agree in just two sentences not read from a teleprompter. Good thing he didn’t say “refudiate.”
But…but…he’s brilliant! It’s all the teleprompter’s fault.
