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:
@JournalistsLike The Santa Clause referenced by White House is actually related to fiscal cliff. Long story short, Tim Allen now involved.

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?
Come check out our Christmas window art by Rodney. Frank and Furter grilling dogs on an open fire and Santa Clause greeting the customers.

“Santa Clause is Coming to Town,” by Bruce Springstein!
What if there really is a Santa Clause but everybody is just on the naughty list?

Oh, dear. When you’ve lost a book of facts …
And a Teachable Moment ™ for the copy editors at the White House:
Writes contract for sled rental company, inserts a Santa clause into last paragraph

That is a Santa clause. You’re welcome.
