He's not even president yet, but Mitt Romney is trying to reorder the very fabric of our great nation ... by misspelling it in his new iPhone app.

Yes, in a copy-editing fail that surely has a developer or two in hibernation today, the Romney campaign's new smartphone application spelled America, "Amercia." The app, which seems otherwise correct, allows supporters to share customized photos with picture frames that boast slogans supporting the former Massachusetts governor, like "I'm a mom for Mitt" and "Obama Isn't Working." Also not working? The spell check.

Of course, it won't hurt him too much—the GOP candidate scored the necessary delegates in Texas this week to clinch the nomination. But the digital gaffe did inspire a new Twitter hashtag, of course. Maybe Mitt's people just got confused watching the pronunciation of the last Republican president.
