Obama, Having a Quayle Moment in the Buckeye State


Look at the bright side, Democrats; I’m fairly certain the president and his supporters can spell Y-M-C-A.

Above, the president and three of his fans attempt to spell out “O-H-I-O” at a Buckeye State campaign stop. Of course, they’re spelling out O-I-H-O. (The image is not Photoshopped, as the Washington Post apparently claimed without evidence.)

It’s a good thing that the president won’t be doing much campaigning in states that are spelled, say, M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I. Of course, to do so, Obama would need to find ten supporters willing to be photographed in the heavily Republican state.
