Michelle Obama should have read my Wednesday post, "It's Nuh-VAA-duh, Stupid!" Mrs. Obama was is Reno today and committed the ultimate sin in a state celebrated for legal prostitution and gambling. She mispronounced the name of the state.
The Associated Press writes, Michelle Obama
was introducing her husband, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, by saying how happy she was to be in Nuh-VAH-duh. The crowd at the University of Nevada Reno immediately burst into heckles...Michelle Obama immediately realized her mistake. "Nuh-VAD-uh! Oh, no," she said, putting her head in her hands in recognition of her blunder.And then she insulted South Carolina. Yep, nice bounce back.
"I've been in South Carolina too long!" she said, a reference to her campaigning the primary state that comes next after Nevada's caucus Saturday.
"It's nice to be here Nuh-VAD-uh! Nevada, Nevada, Nevada!" she said, making the politically correct pronunciation over and over again to applause from the crowd. "I know how to bounce back from my mistakes."
Perhaps Michelle Obama did read the post, but chose to ignore it, or just forgot. I don't kknow. All I know is that if only people would read my blog and do what I say, the world would be a much better place.
