4. even more disgusting...

is that not one of those "illterate" commentators picked up on the grammar fail. On any other news board that would have been picked up immediately. But then again, only Obama voting liberal "illterates" pick up on "illteracy."

7. There was a second spelling error, too.

 

“should have been purged from the voting rolls along time ago,”


Emphasis mine.

Since most of their fans are illiterate themselves, they won't even notice.

6. Yeah ...

Pearson told The Daily Caller his daughter, Darlene Pearson, “should have been purged from the voting rolls along time ago,”


A long time ago ... like, way back in 2008, when you registered her!

"along" time ago? How about ... "A LONG" time ago?

You can't fix stupid, but you can misspell it

It took a while to fix this:

First things first, Fox Nation...perhaps we could find someone who can spell "illiterate" correctly. Poetic Justice?

Hey, Fox Nation, before you get all your little minions angry, you might want to hire someone who actually knows how to spell 'Illiterate' on the headline.

How else do you think the Demoncrats win...dead people, elderly with dementia, mentally handicapped, multiple votes per person, etc. If the Dems ran on their real agenda they would cease to exist.

The title of an essay, or article is important, because that's what inspires people to read the article. Similar to a dirty bathroom or lobby in a restaurant makes me not want to eat at that restaurant. If you didn't proof-read the title, I doubt you proof-read the body of the story.

10. She's "illterate" because of her developmental disability

Vote suppression isn't just for racial or ethnic minorities, y'know. Sen. Hagan should slap him on the hand with her ruler and tell him that vote suppression based on disability is a violation of HAVA.

As they showed in abundance this week.

33. Thank you. In MN we have voter's rights for persons with developmental disabilities because that

label can and does include persons with epiliepsy and other disabilities. I have personally helped several of my daughter's friends vote. They often need help with the spelling but they know who they want to vote for. That is the important issue when one is voting. Many nations vote by picture rather than name because so many in their nation cannot read due to lack of education.

That father can only stop her from voting IF he has guardianship over her and the courts have taken her voting rights away. This has always been a sore spot with me as my own daughter cannot vote due to inability to understand beyond a 12 month level. But of all the people in the US she is very vulnerable to what politicians do.

35. I know about this, too. When people fault it, I remind them that a lot of people voting for Bush,

thought his Dad was running again. That level of stupid has to be countered. And I know a number of DD people who vote from the heart -- and no one tells them how to vote. At least not the ones I know.

24. Despite the perpetual spelling problems of the RW, this dad is horrible. If his daughter feels

more like a citizen or it lifts her spirits or self worth to vote, then don't deny her that honor. If she had voted for his candidate he would have not fussed.

28. Who got here registered in 1996?

If she was able then then she should be able now. Living in a group home or being diabled should not be a bar to voting.

If literacy was a condition of voting then the "morans" wouldn't be.

Its funny if she did vote she would have had to fill out the ballot. In NY we actually have some voting machines for the severely disabled, blind, etc.

30. This exchange is funny. It's a meta-fail....

This is almost at the end of the second page of comments:

@truthwinz

I simply found it ironic that the article is about illiteracy and Fox managed to mispell the word in it's headline.

CHILL!

I have never critiqued the spelling of an everyday poster on Fox Nation. I DO think however we spend a lot of time defending Fox as a professional news organization. It would do them well to spend more time in their editing.
