I Have No Words…Barack ‘Osama’ Found on Absentee Ballot

 

I mean wow. Here’s a story that covered this mess.

It could have been Ovama or Ofama. Or even Olama.

But with one “s” the Rensselaer County Board of Elections turned a single wrong letter into a national embarrassment Friday.

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s last name is spelled “Osama” on some 300 absentee ballots mailed out this week to voters in Rensselaer County hilltowns.

Is it a Freudian slip, intentional gaffe or a mistake? Voters are sure to have opinions, and one politician pointed out that the letters “s” and “b” are not exactly keyboard neighbors. [emphasis added]

“Of all the letters to hit by mistake,” County Democratic Chairman Tom Wade said. “Unfortunately it is a mistake which negatively impacts our Democratic candidate for president.”

I said the same thing

Q W E R T Y U I O P
A S D F G H J K L
Z X C V B N M

That’s what a keyboard looks like.  Come on now saints, if this was deliberate (and I can hardly see how it wasn’t) this was most certainly racist.

Keep it uppity and keep it truthfully radical, JLL
