The title of this post are words I never thought I would say, but fair is fair.

After last weeks "spelling bee" for the word r-e-p-r-e-s-e-n-t-a-t-i-v-e, it seems as though the Democrats don't have a lock on poor spelling. After reading the unique spelling used by the "Winch for Reprasentative" campaign, it seems like Hartford Republican's have devised another new spelling of their own, along with many others by the looks of the Hartford RTC website.

And unfortunately, as if we had to give politicians statewide any more reasons to mock Hartford, the RTC website bills itself as "the official website for the 2010 Republican State Convention". The mis-spelling for Republican Town Chairperson Michael McGarry in the listing for State Central "Represenatives" is only the beginning. The information below is "cut and pasted" direct from their website.

Hopefully now that it has been pointed out the website will be corrected before the weekend to avoid further embarrassment as the "official website".



Michael T. McGarry

Maybe if we knew what was in the cup it might explain some of the spelling.

And then another listing in the "know how to spell your elected office" column, is the incorrect spelling for "C-o-u-n-c-i-l" person Veronica Airey-Wilson, but at least "representative" was spelled correctly. Again the text below was "cut and pasted" from their website.

Court of Common Councel Republican Representative

Veronica Airey-Wilson

The above information was all from the RTC website. The listing of the delegates is copied as is and nothing was added for "comedy" reasons. Yes, it does actually list the delegate and his rental car employer and then goes on to urge you to rent a car from him. Someone could probably make a small fortune if they opened some type of "boot-camp" training on ethics and conflicts of interest for Hartford's aspiring "politicians".

But then again, leadership starts at the top and it's understandable by the example set by their "Court of Common Councel Republican Representative". I chose to leave the picture of her from the RTC website rather than insert her mugshot from her felony arrest as part of the Perez corruption investigation.

And one final observation from the page listing the candidates links to their web pages and bios, the correct use of the word would be "their" as in the possessive for them. "There" as used in the RTC website indicates a location, as in over "there". And the correct spelling is "political".

Below this will be there polictical ads or video

The above text was copied from the RTC website. Just a suggestion to the RTC, maybe you can find someone that works for a newspaper that can help you edit and correct the spelling. If not, give me a call, as with rJo, my observations know no party lines.

Are you serious? No wonder this city is the mess it is. Great way to impress those delegates coming to Hartford Mike.

But then again, everyone realizes the Republican Party in Hartford is a joke, this just proves it

And with all those "waisted" miles, obesity must be a real problem for the RTC!
