Poll: What was the Obamateurism of the Week?
posted at 9:00 am on August 23, 2009 by Ed Morrissey
I’m doing a Marriage Encounter weekend and writing this to post automatically, but I’m a little nervous; is that like leaving Tonsil Vultures in charge of your health care? I’d mail it in to Allahpundit, but the post office sounds like a bad bet these days. The good news is that we have five great picks, although if I used Obama’s math it would be 0.005, which makes it hard to poll. It’ll be late in the day before we head home today, but I doubt we’ll burn rubber leaving, like they did at Daytona Beach when the moonshiners started NASCAR during prohibition, according to Obama’s history. I’ll say Shalom and just leave it at that.

Got an Obamateurism of the Day? If you see a foul-up by Barack Obama, e-mail it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the quote and the link to the Obamateurism. I’ll post the best Obamateurisms on a daily basis, depending on how many I receive. Include a link to your blog, and I’ll give some link love as well. And unlike Slate, I promise to end the feature when Barack Obama leaves office.
