Mitt Romney's Campaign Really Should Be Hooked on Phonics

  • Whose turn is it to wear the dunce cap over there at the Romney HQ?

If Mitt Romney's campaign has demonstrated anything to the American public since he became the Republican nominee, it's that nobody over there could win a fourth grade spelling bee.

Yes, spelling might be hard for some people, but hiring a proofreader isn't, especially if you have a natural proclivity for mistakes as the Romney campaign clearly does. Sadly, Romney is having to deal with another humiliating typo on his campaign literature, as you can see to the right.

It seems like the only thing Romney is giving us a sneak peek of is his team's lazy orthography skills.

We were willing to overlook his egregious mis-spelling of "Amercia" on an app he rolled out last week, but now we are starting to wonder if we have another George Bush on our hands -- and that we can't overlook.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
