What should I be doing instead of this?

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.
