In the Course of It, Trump Wrote His Epitaph

Apparently, nobody ever taught Karl Rove the difference between epitaph and epithet. Speaking on Today about Donald Trump’s unexpectedly swift implosion as a Republican presidential candidate, the revolting Rove said:
He made his campaign all about an issue which was not at the center of the political debate; namely, the allegation that Barack Obama was somehow not born in the United States.

That got blown up, but I also think observers have made the point--and I agree with it--that his swearing epitaph-laden speech in Las Vegas turned off a lot of voters.
Someone get that man a dictionary!
