More importantly, this disqualifies him from the Presidency. Did you hear he's also not good at bowling?

Definitely not going to help him in Pennsylvania, but after years of Bushisms, I doubt that mangling a single word a single time is going to hurt him either.  Now if he had repeatedly referred to the "Nittaly" Lions, there might be a problem, but that's not the case.

A 3 second clip on youtube isn't going to change perceptions. But who knows about PA. Maybe the state will move like 1% towards Mccain because of this.

I would love to see an ad run about the bitter, clinging,  Nittaly Lions  :-)

Nittany Lions = correct.  Nittaly Lions = incorrect.

This is of roughly the same order of magnitude as Kerry's calling the Green Bay Packers' Lambeau Field "Lambert Field" (like the St. Louis airport) in 2004.

IIRC, he lost the state.

I knew the son of the  Chairman of Cambria County GOP Committee in 1964.  He vividly remembered his mother telling Nelson Rockefeller to pronounce the name of the county the way the locals do, so that "Cam" (short "a") rhymes with "jam," not "Cam" (long "a"), rhymes with "lame."  To do it would have cost him votes in the county.

I saw Dwight Evans make a similar mistake in the Democratic gubernatorial primary debate in 1994, except he called it "Cambridge County."

Almost as bad as Kerry ordering a Philly cheese steak with Swiss cheese.

Candidates who make those kinds of mistakes could never win PA.

If there hadn't been massive voter fraud in that state, John Kerry's "Lambert Field" gaffe would've cost him in Wisconsin.

Almost, but I thought it was referring to MO.
