Obama's Obscure Pronunciation of "Nuclear" Breaks with Tradition
Little Heard Since Carter Presidency, Historians Say

WASHINGTON (
The Borowitz Report) - In what some are calling the boldest move of his Presidency, Barack Obama broke with a time-honored tradition observed by several U.S. Presidents including George W. Bush by pronouncing the word "nuclear" as it appears in the dictionary.Announcing the new weapons pact with Russia today, Mr. Obama repeatedly pronounced the word "nuclear" in a way that has rarely been used by a U.S. President since Jimmy Carter was in the White House.But according to Davis Logsdon, a professor of international relations at the University of Minnesota, Mr. Obama's pronunciation of "nuclear" may have been key to the diplomatic breakthrough: "The Russians have heard Presidents pronounce it "nucular" for so long, they may have thought he was offering something new."Mr. Obama's obscure pronunciation of "nuclear" drew harsh reactions from members of the Tea Party movement, who see the President's obsession with correct English usage as an attempt to make the nation more European.A sign at a recent Teabagger rally read, "Obama Wants to Disconnect Your Granma (sic) and Correct Your Gramar (sic)."Elsewhere, Sarah Palin campaigned for John McCain today in a bid to shore up his support among morons

My question in the Johnny McC and Sara Pay is, does she get another free hoity toity wardrobe?

Amazing how those right wingers bury the hatchet. A few months ago she was lambasting Johnny's way with her during the presidential campaign. He was distancing himself from having chosen her to run with him. Now in desperation he is turning back to her for help. Oh lordy don't let your babies grow up to be wingnuts!

I've never been able to understand why someone would vote Republican... But then, this is coming from someone whose country kept Thatcher in power for 11 years... :o(

Thank God we now have a President who doesn't abuse the English language with every word that comes out of his mouth.

However, the tea baggers think he's a snob. :)

Snob on, Mr. President.
