In a (an) hilarious satire of the media’s obsession with political gaffes, a blogger reports that Obama has ignited a scandal today by saying “a historic challenge” instead of his earlier phrase “an historic challenge”. They nail Rove, with the (satirical) quote:

This is a major turnaround of great concern to the American voters. Obama drew millions of new voters to the Democrats by talking about ‘an’ historical challenge. But now he’s saying ‘a’ historical challenge. Will the voters tolerate this reversal on an issue of great concern to the voters?

But the best line is the last one, attributed to a “host of a corporate media program”:

We are creating an image of Obama. Is he a man who changes his opinions when he learns new facts? Is America really ready for that sort of leadership?

The whole entry is definitely worth a read.
