Presidential Candidate Barack Obama Mangles Penn State's Nickname

In the video below, the Democratic Presidential candidate refers to the school nickname as the "Nittaly Lions". Good thing he's not running for public office or anything.

The program's head coach who leans right might take offense, but then there's his son and quarterbacks coach who enjoys blogging about his love for Barack Obama on company time to find sympathy from. Regardless, it's friendly and forgiving political turf.

Not that he needs any excuses, but it's been a long campaign and these mistakes happen to all the candidates, although this one does call back a bit to John Kerry's "Lambert Field" error in Wisconsin. The difference of course being Obama comes across as an actual athlete and sports fan instead of playing one for the cameras.

See the gaffe for yourself below.
