How dare anyone notice that the Obama administration seems to have a bit of trouble with spelling! Math is hard, and so is spelling. That’s right; The White House misspelled Santa Claus. A screenshot, from WhiteHouse.gov:

whsantaclause

There’s one explanation! And here is another.

It’s funny, because it is totally possible.

Sadly, the White House is not alone, as a quick search of “Santa Clause” indicates. Public education at work? Since schools are banning Christmas, are they also banning the proper spelling of Santa Claus?

Well, neither do most people. But do you believe in Santa Claus?

Oh, dear. When you’ve lost a book of facts

And a Teachable Moment ™ for the copy editors at the White House:

That is a Santa clause. You’re welcome.

    Unfortunately, there is no Escape Clause from Obama and ObamaCare.

      The Santa Clause of Obamacare means that once a year, on Dec 25, the federal gubmint can confiscate whatever they didn’t get on April 15.

        Oh man…I know you lay awake nights thinking up these awesome responses…some of your replies and posts really make me laugh…and Lord knows we need that these days!

    Santa Clause comes right after the Commerce Clause in the US Constitution… 😛

      As far as King O. is concerned, the Santa clause trumps the 10th Amendment.

    They must’ve been watching Tim Allen Christmas movies right before they wrote that.

    Funny how the White House is Clause-a-phobic when it comes to Clauses in the U.S. Constitution.

  • kayakingfatso

    Don’tcha know what the Santa Clause is? Give away things that don’t belong to you to get what YOU want.

    Hey, I wonder if Obama knows Clause von Bulow, a member of the 1%?? Aw, but he moved back to London so O can’t tax the heck out of him. Shucks.

  • ceemack

    I sure hope Santa brings me a bar-b-q this year so I can grille up some frank and furters.

    I hope you’re all in agreement.

    I think someone has confused Santa Claus with the sanity clause.*

      aren’t they related santa clause and sanity clause?

    I’d rather be visited by Dependent Clause.

    Can you use it in a sentence?
    “Barack Obama enacted a massive expansion of entitlements under the Santa Clause.”

  • TexSizzle

    They probably think the elves are subordinate Clauses.
