You're Kidding, Right?

So, reader Gerry sends in this picture:

Naturally, I had to check it out, in case it was Photoshopped or something. Lord knows we had plenty of moments with George W. Bush that were "helped" by a concerned lefty using P-shop, so I wanted to check out if this was legit.

Apparently, it was.

So what’s the catch?  There is undeniably a large “r” missing from the word “forward,” and video from the event shows the same thing.

Apparently, the “o” in “Foward” has a circle with an arrow, pointing to a previous “r.”
There's a close-up at the link. Apparently, someone in the Obama/Biden campaign thought it would be cute to use the "R" in "FORWARD" to say "Re-Elect Obama". Rather than doing something like:


...they chose to use a smaller "R" and a freakin' arrow pointing to it. And then sat these two supporters in the front row of a pep rally, so it looks to all the world like the campaign misspelled "FORWARD". Yeah. Great idea, guys. Smartest men in America right there... Nothing like appearing at a campaign pep rally looking like you don't know how to spell to get your point across.

Keep it up, guys - only two weeks ae left in your e-election effots...

That is all.

What's the Fuss? That's Perfectly Good 'Murican English.

At least in the language used by a lot of the "Uths" in a lot of the Major Inner Cities in the U.S.

I hope their designer said "Seriously? This is a stupid idea. Seriously." and got over-ruled.

Because I like to think of designers as competent, is all.

Wasn't "Forward!" the slogan of the animals in 'Animal Farm'?
