Welfare cowboy Cliven Bundy’s failed last stand isn’t the only thing making Nevadans blush this week. 

Gov. Brian Sandoval (R-Nev.) recently issued a proclamation designating this week “state employees week” — usually, no big deal, governors issue things like this all the time. However, the proclaimation misspelled the word “cultural” in describing the work state employees do to protect “cultural resources.” 

The result?

The proclamation extolled the hard work of state employees in conserving and preserving “clitorial resources” in Nevada. Perhaps he was just courting the vote of those who have a clitoris?

Oops. Spell-check AND copyediting are crucial, kids. If the governor needs a copy-editor, simianhighway might be available.

No, People In Colorado Are Not Using Food Stamps To Buy Pot

What happens when you mistake satire for real news? Headlines like the one above!

Remember Colorado State Sen. Vickie Marble? You last saw her claiming poverty was higher among those in the “black race” because they eat too much fried chicken.

Yeah. Her. She’s still in office.

Anyhow, she and the Douglas County Republican Party were duped by a satire site into believing Colorado food stamp recipients were using their benefits to buy pot. In her role as state senator, she filed a bill to stop it.

Oops.
