Funny Thought of the Day

My readers* should know that I read OpinionJournal.com daily (at least twice) and am a devoted reader of James Taranto and Best of the Web Today.

Here is his witty response to the issue of ballots being mailed out with 'Osama' instead of 'Obama':

Thanks to several readers, we think we've figured out how officials in Rensselaer County, N.Y., rendered Barack Obama's last name as "Osama." It's the same thing that tripped up Dan Rather: Microsoft Word. Some versions of this software--including the one we use, Word 2002--do not recognize "Obama" when doing a spell-check, and suggest "Osama" as a correction.
This almost certainly means the person responsible was a Democrat. After all, who else would see "Obama" and reflexively respond by clicking "Change"?

(end Taranto)

I mean really folks, how can this NOT be funny to you. "Who else would see 'Obama' and reflexively respond by clicking 'Change'?" That is just classic.. pure comedy. Of course, I wager that not a single liberal laughed when reading that line. Lighten up folks. And the shot on Dan Rather? Again, pure gold here folks. Taranto's witt strike again.

*Yes, I acknowledge all two of you.
