TOTUS

Don’t Knock It; It’s Essential

Sarah Palin has mocked Obama recently for his verbal gaffes, “misspeaking”, and mistakes.  She has strung together a concatenation of speaking errors, presumably when he was “doing impromptu” rather than working off the TOTUS (Teleprompter of The United States).

My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate – from the FBI’s 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. And let’s face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I don’t know what the term is in Austrian for that… 

Our favourite is Obama’s error of pronunciation when Obama he was speaking at a National Prayer Day gathering.  He repeatedly (mis)pronounced “corpsman” as “corpseman”. 

At the National Prayer Breakfast yesterday, President Obama slipped up in his speech when speaking of a Navy corpsman named Christian Brossard. However instead of pronouncing the word corpsman like kawr-muhn, he pronounced it as corpse-man.

But then again, you can’t blame the lack of a teleprompter for that one.  It all goes to show every human being has feet of clay, TOTUS notwithstanding.
