If old moneybags Romney is going to bring down über cool celebrity Barack Obama, he’s going to have to make the cell phone cool kids relate to him without the burdensome task of researching how terrible he is on the issues. So the Romney campaign boosted its tech credentials by releasing and official Mitt iPhone app, only the campaign failed to notice that they spelled America wrong. The app proudly proclaims that Romney will lead “Amercia.”
Either the Tea Party has infiltrated the Romney campaign or spelling is about as important to Romney as paying taxes. The App itself, much like Romney, is a complete and utter generic tedium of blandness. Basically, the app allows you to snap series of lame Mitt-themed graphics over pretty much anything you want to take a picture of, then upload it to the Instagram. So it’s either an etch-a-sketch or a more exciting Republican candidate.
