Obama be *what*?


Really, Copyeditors Needed Now?  You couldn't put a "Will" or a "Can" in front of "Obama be beaten in 2012" to make it a complete sentence and not something that looks like what a little kid might write?  There was plenty of room to do so, and you...just...didn't.  It's sad, really--there's no excuse for that sort of laziness with writing and proofreading.  Can those Copywriters Needed Now folks really not find any better writers and editors than people who think "Obama be beaten in 2012" actually sounds good as a headline?
