So, thanks to the Lone Star State, Mitt(ens) Romney is officially the RNC poster boy to go against President Obama in a few months. Good for him and those who voted for him a couple of weeks ago.
That said, this writer is very concerned about his marketing collateral. You see, his tagline is "Believe in America." Given that persnickety tenet about "i" before "e" except after "c", some advice: change that moniker immediately, sir.
Why? It seems the presidential hopeful doesn't really count on spell check, nor do his minions as seen with this giggle snort article from the Huffington Post.
It all started with some fat fingers on his Facebook page noted by the great @typohunter. One of his highly edumicated tech guys determined that an app would be a great platform to say "With Mitt, we will have a better Amercia."
Then, said Web heads went to Facebook with their habitually crappy version of 'Hooked on Phonics' with an ad that offered supporters a "sneek peek" of his campaign.
And now that everyone is questioning the public school system in Massachusetts, we have this offering from the "Rominee" found on his actual Facebook page in the form of "2012 Offical Gear."
Now, while the "i" before "e" law may seem a little "weird" (think about it), grammatical standards are created for a reason. If not for anything, how about hiring someone would a halfway-decent command of the English lexicon?
Oh sorry, I see that's already happened. Well, good luck with that.
