It can be frustrating when someone with good ideas and/or intentions makes a mistake that could cause them to be taken less seriously. Case in point.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I for one have grown very weary of "COUNRTY CLUB POLITICS". The Center for Responsive Politics at, states that "about 1 percent of all Americans are millionaires. In Congress that number regularly hovers, between 40 percent and 50 percent, meaning elected leaders generally need not worry about the economic pressures many Americans face - from securing gainful employment to grappling with keeping a family

Now I'd say he's got a pretty strong point here. And if I lived in Texas, there's a pretty good chance that I'd vote for this man. But misspelling one of the all-caps words makes his campaign look amateurish. And in politics, no one likes an amateur.

Fix, please.

I left a comment on this post last night and now it's gone. Blogger - hmpff.

Besides the bad spelling you note I'd also discovered that by the end of the first funding quarter the poor guy had $140 - $100 of which he'd loaned himself. Some guys just can't catch a break.

Blogger? It's been cranky before, although not too often.

Oh wow. So $40 in outside donations. The only bright side is that it doesn't present any red flags to campaign finance investigators.
