In the first two weeks since the election, President-elect Barack Obama has broken with a tradition established over the past eight years through his controversial use of complete sentences, political observers say.Millions of Americans who watched Mr. Obama's appearance on CBS's 60 Minutes on Sunday witnessed the president-elect's unorthodox verbal tick, which had Mr. Obama employing grammatically correct sentences virtually every time he opened his mouth.* * *According to presidential historian David Logston of the University of Minnesota, some Americans might find it "alienating" to have a president who speaks English as if it were his first language."Every time Obama opens his mouth, his subjects and verbs are in agreement," says Mr. Logston. "If he keeps it up, he is running the risk of sounding like an elitist."
Oh no, an elitist who can speak properly! There's more Borowitz at The Huffington Post.
