Why spell check is so important...

Ok everyone, this is not kid-friendly. Or Christian-friendly. Or anyone friendly, really. Fair warning given, avert your eyes if you don't like the C-word. Yes, THAT C-word.

I was watching Rufus Wainwright's "Out of the Game" (a pretty great video starring an amazing Helena Bonham Carter) when I saw it! I couldn't believe my own eyes! A Romney-Ryan ad with a gross misspelling of "Country." I made an audible gasp, called Danny over to see it, and in his best deadpan said what we both were thinking, "Oops."

Oops, indeed.

Now, to be fair, it isn't a Romney-Ryan ad sponsored by them.  It's paid for by the American Future Fund and not authorized by any candidate, but I still wonder: how did this get past the proofers?? And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why we spell check.
