Obama (left) Geography not his forte

In a recent speech, Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama, speaking of Greensberg, Kansas, which was devastated by a massive killer tornado last Friday, expressly stated that 10000 people were killed. In actuality, 10 people were killed.

According to Fester Dingwood, Associate Professor of Political Science at Cornball University, such an error isn't necessarily cause for concern. "In my view, it is close enough for government work," Professor Dingwood said. He went on to point out that spelling is a more important skill than geography, for prospective occupants of the White House, citing the current war in Iraq, which is the result of the President's inability to correctly spell Iran.
