Steev and Cokee Robberts Cant Spel

Filed under: Grammar — Patterico @ 7:43 pm

Instapundit noticed that Cokie and Steve Roberts called John Hinderaker “John Hindrocket” in a recent column. But nobody seems to have noticed that within the space of that short column, the Roberts duo also made reference to a Sen. “Lindsay” Graham, and someone named Joe “Leiberman.”

I don’t know if Steve and Cokie would approve of the spelling reform noted earlier today by guest blogger See Dubya. But they need some kind of help.

  1. the blogosphere doesn’t misspel, because its self-correcting.

  2. For those who missed the irony of this, “Hindrocket” is the name the lefties over at dailykos call Hinderaker. This image of Cokie Roberts trolling the wacko left websites looking for material is great.

  3. Well, it’s actually a nickname that he used for himself until recently. But it’s not his real name, which is the point. The lefties aren’t so kind to call him “Hindrocket” — they generally substitute something less kind in place of the “hind.”
