Someone needs a copy editor!

From Romney's website--

"As president, Mitt will work to expand and enhance access and opportunities for Americans to hunt, shoot, and protect their families, homes and property,...."

Looks like someone is flip-flopping on the Oxford comma. Oh, dear! What will the powerful editorial voting bloc do in response to this? Maybe, instead of obsessing over serial commas, we can spend some time hunting our families and shooting our homes.

feeling snarky,

"Oh, no! My homes are running away from me! Get me the shotgun!"

Nice visual image you gave me there. Do you see any errors from the other side of the political spectrum?

If I do, Chihuahhua0, I will be happy to post them here. I'm an independent when it comes to snarking at grammar.

You've got to love Mitt. He's not afraid to say anything or to change his mind. LOL. Thanks for the post.

Who knows? With the way politic are these days, maybe it means exactly what it says. LOL.

This is hilarious! What a difference a comma can make. Mitt doesn't strike me as the hunting type but maybe he has everyone fooled.

Seems to me he's constantly hunting. FOR VOTES!

My niece sent me this, and you can tell that she has learned the Importance of Comma-ing Correctly:

"When do we eat, Mommy?"
