Obama Dates Westminster Abbey Guestbook Entry '24 May 2008'
...Just as President Barack Obama's reelection campaign gears up ahead of 2012, it seems possible that the president's mind is stuck back in the last election cycle.
Apparently Mr Obama was heard to ask the dean what the day's date was - but managed to get the year wrong.
A Westminster Abbey spokeswoman confirmed it was the president who had written the wrong date...
Sarah Palin when asked knew the correct date.
