The deadline has arrived to pick this week’s biggest Obamateurism, but don’t expect a free ride.  Making it too easy would show a lack of faith in OOTW voters, after all.  I’d tell you I feel your pain, but then again, I’d probably just shrug it off with a government program.


Note: Last week’s OOTW poll was perhaps the closest we’ve ever had. The winner below only beat “Goes to Maine for vacation after First Lady urges people to visit the Gulf” by 44 votes. I believe that we may have had some illegal felon voting that wound up deciding this election, so I’ll be doing some investigation. I’m going to tell Salem that it seems to have originated in either Hawaii, Tahiti, or DisneyWorld, and I’ll need to check out all three to figure it out…

Got an Obamateurism of the Day? If you see a foul-up by Barack Obama, e-mail it to me at [email protected] 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.
