Lacking an "A" Effort
March 9, 2010 - Joselyn King
What's in a name? A lot when politics is involved, and it's an election year.
The League of American Voters -- that's "American" voters, not the League of Women Voters -- is attacking U.S. Rep. Alan Mollohan, D-W.Va., and other House Democrats for their support of health care reform legislation proposed by the Obama White House and now before Congress.
The ads run frequently. Anybody but me notice that the group consistently misspells "Alan" as "A-l-l-a-n?" He has been in office for 28 years, and you would think someone there might have seen the name.
A-hem. . .maybe they're not from West Virginia?
You would think if gunslingers were coming in from out of town, they could at least shoot straight.
