Children's do learn

You can't really make this up. Yesterday, at a speech in which he was talking about Education, and learning, the President of the United States, a graduate of Harvard and Yale, said this:
"As yesterday's positive report card shows, childrens do learn when standards are high and results are measured"
Childrens. Do. Learn.

I learned about this because of the Daily Show. Jon Stewart started the show with the clip. Then he begged the president to stop offering such easy material. He told the President that the Daily Show has a lot of really funny talented people who "don't need your charity."

It was truly hilarious. Oh, and of course, the White House changed the transcript so it didn't seem so painfully ironic that when discussing education, the President makes a mistake that makes him seem like a five-year-old.
