…So what do you call four times?
We all heard about Obama’s outrageous mispronunciation of corpsman last week. In case you missed it:
Now, he doesn’t just do it once, he does it three times. THREE TIMES. A Navy corpsman is a combat medic, trained and able to do things that you’ll never be able to see in any war movie. If you want to know who the Marines hold in high regard, it’s the corpsman that goes out with their unit and treats their injuries while being shot at themselves. It is not “corpse-man”, it is “CORR-man”.
I hadn’t really said anything, but I felt I had to this time. Why? Michelle Malkin posted a video that shows it’s not the first time O-blah-ma has made this error. Back in October 2009, he said it right in front of a Navy audience:
Make a mistake once (like making an oopsie while reciting an old saying, “fool me once, shame on…who, again?”), it’s a gaffe. Once can be forgiven. Four times? You’re a bona-fide idiot.
(In other news, it was announced today that former Congressman Charlie Wilson passed away today in his hometown of Lufkin; more on that as I am capable of finding further info.)
