otherwise known as the "commander guy"


thanks to reader Lisa, who has been hanging onto this one for a while. Although, really, that punctuator may have been fully aware of what s/he was doing, given the 2000 election and all.

Admitting my political leanings, may I nominate this one for your greatest hits sidebar?

bethany said...

that's my leaning too. And you're right, this one does rock.

Hey, I like it that much, but it's been amusing me for many months now! Glad I got to share it!

Actually in this instance I'd suggest that they were using scare quotes, a tactic to incur a negative response in the audience. Just a thought.

LOL, this is my hometown. I may actually know the creator of this sign!

Oh my gosh! I love it! Your site rocks!

Heeheehee, too funny, whatever your political leanings.

wow. admitting my political more-than-leaning, I would say the quotes might not be unnecessary. of course they wouldn't welcome him then, would they? No, they would "welcome" him.

Personally, I think that sign is perfectly fine. What's wrong with it? I always put "president" in quotes when refering to G.W.B. Also in quotes: "Leader", "decider", and "Christian." Maybe that's just me.

Meh. Definitely intentional sneer quotes, rather than garden-variety quotation-mark misuse.

Looks okay to me. I always whip out the airquotes when I speak of him who shall not be named, so this works.
