Barack Osama Listed On Ballot

What...what am I missing in this story? What's all the commotion about? I don't get it.

No, this is not a Photoshop.

From the
Times Union:

    This is not a joke.

    Absentee ballots with the name “Barack Osama” were sent out to 300 voters in Rensselaer County.

And the full story is here. Times Union:

    Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's last name is spelled "Osama" on hundreds of absentee ballots mailed out this week to voters in Rensselaer County.

    The misspelling, which elections officials on both sides of the aisle insist was simply a typo, is causing embarrassment for the county.

    ''No question this is an honest mistake innocently done,'' said Edward McDonough, the Democratic commissioner. ''We catch almost everything.''

    ''This was a typo,'' said Republican Commissioner Larry Bugbee. ''We have three different staff members who proof these things and somehow the typo got by us.''

    Officials say the flawed ballots were sent to approximately 300 voters. On row 1A Barack Obama's name is spelled Barack Osama.

I don't get it. Isn't that the way Barack's name is spelled? What exactly is the controversy?


Labels: ,

this isn't even funny. why am i not reading that someone got on the news, explained the "mistake", and apologized.
Actually his real name is spelled POS, but Turdbama would be acceptable.

I think the story is HYSTERICAL because we all know Obama is a stealth Arab terrorist! Oh yes he is!

The Times Union story has apologies from both Dem and Repub commissioners apologizing for the error, but that's not enough for you Obama Cultists, is it? What more do you want? Maybe you want Barry to stop by and hold you in his arms?

Brian=another commenter whose hypertext name leads to a "Blogger profile unavailable" page. Another brave cheerleader for Obama? What a puss.

Turdbama and Fraudbama would be honest description of the Arab terrorist aka Barack Hussein Obama, though.

I hope they let the ballot stand as is, it's truthful.
