It’s time for our weekly salute to the ongoing whiffs of President Obama and the poll to decide the Obamateurism of the Week!  This week, all of the gaffes were Made in America, which makes them exactly like, er, Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King Jr!  Be sure to vote, though, because it helps Obama understand the market in presidential gaffes.

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.
