Dear Tea Party: "Use Spell Check!"

      
  •

(Update: We've got a new picture up top! We had been using the "Get a brain morans" one, which seemed perfect for this, and we figured it'd been around so long everyone knew it was old, but... it's been rightfully pointed out that we should use an actual Tea Party pic.  And since there are pretty much a zillion of those... why not?   :)

Over the past few years, the Tea Party has become a nearly endless fount of hilariously twisted logic, and of stupidity that "goes to an 11."  

We've grown used to things like chants of "keep your government hands off my Social Security", rants about secession, and bizarre combinations of "fascist", "socialist", and whatever other "ists" they happen to have read on a bumper sticker on the way to the rally.  Never before has so much nonsense come from so few people.  It's really impressive.

What we haven't grown used to, however, is their truly painful spelling.  Not even just messing up words, but writing in ALL CAPS, and using very,weird,grammar,and,spacing.   It's enough to make a grown librarian cry.

Thus, we ask, we plead, we beg the Tea Party:  Use spell check.  Really, it's easy.  It's already built into your computer.  

Seriously, it's just painful to have to decipher your writing.  Unfortunately, there's no "logic check" yet, so we can't completely fix your twisted nonsense.  But at least the nonsense can be spelled right.

Please, use spell check.  We're begging you.

that kind of stuff cracks me up and it really shouldn't.  It should show us how our government run school system is doing its job.  I have heard in some schools now they no longer teach spelling.

Well either that or they just have low IQ's and dropped out of school.

LOL I always use spell check but that is because I can't type worth a darn.
