If You're Stupid And You Know It, Raise Your Sign!
I have a lot of idiosyncrasies that bother me, but my biggest pet peeve is bad spelling. I have on occasion let a few slip by, if only because I've had disagreements with my spellcheck, I'm not going to let some machine tell me I can't invent words, or compound them, dammit, I'm a professional writer. Nothing makes a person look stupid than a misspelled word.
This goes back to former VP Dan Quayle and his inability to spell the simplest of words. I was working with a Dittohead at the time, and they insisted there was nothing wrong with the next in line to be leader of the "free" world being too stupid to know how to spell a tuber. (I am now Facebook friends with the guy and have noticed numerous misspellings in his status updates, the latest being "comming", and no, he didn't mean that)

It's easy to see why our country is in the state it's in: there are just too many dumbfucks out there. They believe what they're told by right wing gate keepers because they lack the critical processes to think for themselves. They are just a bunch of brain damaged beer swilling, Nascar loving, television watchers.
If you've ever wondered where politicians like Michelle Bachmann, Sarah Palin, or George W Bush come from, look no further. It's because of idiots like these, that ultimately, our country is doomed.
