Shouldn't Obama's flak be joking about this instead of lodging an official complaint and getting some peon at MSNBC in trouble?
"It happened during the opening of â€˜Hardball' Monday evening. Matthews was previewing a story on the controversy over Obama's use of another politician's words, and a picture of bin Laden briefly flashed on the screen beside him with the headline â€˜Words About Words.'
"The Obama campaign immediately called NBC to complain, and Matthews apologized on the air a few minutes later. When â€˜Hardball' was rerun later that night, a picture of Obama replaced the picture of the terrorist leader. . . . Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor noted the apology and said the campaign had no other comment."
Elsewhere in the article, it is noted that many spell checkers suggest Osama as a correction for Obama. I'd prefer to be in the camp of WEEKLY STANDARD contributor Reihan Salam--spellcheckers suggest his first-name be changed to Reagan.
