Poll: What was the Obamateurism of the Week?

The Obamateurism poll is a lot like Barack Obama’s Nobel prize — it’ll recognize a lack of achievement.  It has its roots more in The Gong Show than in Gandhi’s India, but at least it gets the name of the head of state right.  Thousands of people are impressed enough with it to cast votes, which beats Obama’s concept of how many people Chicago has impressed in decades of hosting sporting events.  I’d brag about the choice I think would win, but it’s usually best to wait for the results first.

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.
