Uh, President Who?

Although she’s no longer a TV news reporter, maybe Laure Quinlivan still isn’t used to not having fact-checkers around to provide backup.

Quinlivan, a former reporter with WCPO-TV’s I-Team who is now running as a Democrat for Cincinnati City Council, distributed an e-mail Wednesday in Democratic circles seeking volunteers for upcoming campaign events. Given the targeted audience, however, Quinlivan might have wanted to pay closer attention to her spelling.

One of the events listed in the e-mail where the campaign needs volunteers is, “Monday — Labor Day Picnic at Coney Island featuring President Baraq Obama.”

Several Democrats brought the e-mail to CityBeat’s attention, including one person who remarked, “Don’t you think that if you are a Democrat running for public office, that you should know how to spell the name of the President of the United States?”

Or at least use a spell-check program.

Personally, I’ve always liked the president’s cream soda and root beer flavors.

I think it was purposely misspelled so that many will notice about it and they will be informed about the needs of volunteer. Now, if it was not misspelled I think people will not are less if there was the said event, now people are aware that there is the said events and people will come. They are able to save a lot of instant cash in informing other people.

Spelling, grammar and punctuation errors are pretty common these days. Members of the video game generation are taking their places in media and government. Keep watching that "shaky cam" folks!
