You guys remember a few years ago when the White House had one of their evening concerts and Barack Obama took the stage to wax lovingly about Aretha Franklin?
He decided to prattle off a bit of her iconic song Respect.
Yeah. It didn’t go very well.
I’d like to buy a vowel, Pat.
But apparently Barack Obama isn’t the only one who can’t spell RESPECT.
This morning, Al Sharpton gave it a go and failed miserably (hat tip the Free Beacon).
For heaven’s sake, Aretha spells out RESPECT in her song. More than once!
Not being able to spell RESPECT when referring to a song in which RESPECT is spelled out repeatedly is like failing an open book test.
Now, I realize we’re talking about Barack “Cinco de Quatro” Obama and Al “Resist we much” Sharpton.
It’s a seven-letter word.
And it isn’t even a difficult one.
You know how I learned how to spell aggressive?
The LaFayette High School cheerleaders.
Every game they chanted:
B E aggressive!
B E A GG R E SS I V E!
Now, every time I type the word aggressive, I am mumbling to myself “B E A GG R E SS I V E.”
RESPECT is a whole lot simpler.
Or at least I thought it was.
Could you imagine if Aretha had a song called PUSILLANIMOUS?
Poor Al would choke on his tongue.
