Amercia: Mitt Romney campaign typo spurs internet memes
Mitt Romney wants “A Better Amercia.” It’s a mistake anyone could make, but luckily for us on a slow Wednesday morning, it was a mistake that a presidential candidate made.
It was likely a campaign member or some sort of tech person who made an embarrassing typo when designing a mobile app meant to instill voter support, but that hasn’t stopped the Twittersphere from pouncing on the error.
The Mitt Romney app “With Mitt” lets users upload photos of themselves underneath various campaign slogans like “American Greatness,” “We’re With Mitt,” and the now infamous “A Better Amercia.” (In case you didn’t catch that — and someone in the Romney camp didn’t — “America” is misspelled.)
Alas, a new wave of internet memes was born as the slogan became the center of digital mockery. Here’s a roundup of the best plays on “A Better Amercia.”
