This picture was copied from a flyer sent to me by the Democratic Party Of Georgia. I have no idea why I'm on their list, as I have never voted for a Democrat in GA. Can you tell me what's wrong with this pic from a DEMOCRATIC ad?

I'm beginning to think proofreading is a lost art. I'm a real stickler for grammar and spelling, and I see typos everywhere, everyday, on everything. Ad materials for multinational conglomerate corporations with glaring mistakes. Emails from my superiors with run-on sentences, comma splices, fragments, misused apostrophes (we have an "operation's manager") and other errata too numerous to list. Apostrophe abuse is rampant.

It's sickening. (note the proper use of "it's" as a contraction for "it is")

Damn sight better than what we have now.

Far from perfect. Far from ideal, even.

But mainly, given the OP, I just thought it was funny. C'mon, admit it, you smiled. :mrgreen:

I sometimes discover incomplete sentences.

Sorry MP, not looking to argue in defense of W. He wasn't the best there was, just the best of those we had to chose from, which isn't saying much. "Socialist Lite" falls under the heading "Far from perfect".

Exactly, because going off the cliff in 3rd gear is so much better than going off the cliff in 4th gear. I mean as long as we've down shifted, everything is good, right?

Yeah, that's what I said.

It doesn't take much to be better than the disaster going on in DC now. If you expect me to defend any of the garbage that came out of the previous 8 years, nope. He set a very low bar, and his successor failed to clear even that. None of this is good.

When you take the subordinate clauses away from the clause they depend on, of course you see it as an incomplete sentence.

I thought they taught grammar and argumentation in law school. You must have been in church those days.

That's funny; I was going to say the same thing. Where are the verbs? :lol:

Gsusnake is correct, however. Even in major publications you see horrible typographical errors.

You are really under the impression that grammar is a law school subject?

I suppose it is relative and merely a matter of perception, then, since I do indeed "see it as an incomplete sentence."
