The cringe-inducing clunkers on display include:
- "No other Congressman co-sponsors more of my bills then Roscoe." I believe they teach the difference between "then" and "than" in grade school!
- "He is one of two Congressman with the courage..." Again, I believe they teach singular vs. plural forms in grade school. And what is with the continued capitalization of "Congressman" when it does not precede a name?
- "Roscoe Bartlett voted with me twice against the Bailout twice." Just because he voted with you twice doesn't mean you need to use the word "twice" twice, Ron! And again, what's with the capitalization of a regular noun (Bailout)?
I'm sure some people will think I should not hold Congressman Bartlett accountable for the Paul campaign's mistakes. But in the same envelope as Paul's missive was a letter from Bartlett himself urging his constituents to read the endorsement letter. Bartlett and his staff either chose not to vet Paul's letter, which shows a lack of attention to detail that is no doubt also reflected in Bartlett's work as a congressman; or they didn't notice any mistakes, which shows that they should be clawed to death by a troupe of angry wombats.
I think I'll vote instead for the candidate whose web site accurately describes her as an aspiring congresswoman, not "an asspiring Congresswomen".
