This just in from the Department of Petty Grammar Complaints: If you're the type of person who starts foaming at the mouth at the sight of apostrophe abuse, you might want to steer clear of Gov. Nikki Haley's Facebook page.

Aside from banishing dissidents from her social network, the governor (or whoever manages her page) apparently gets "its" and "it's" mixed up. A lot.

Now, we realize this is a fairly common mistake. We've probably made the same one ourselves here at the City Paper from time to time, and Lord knows that we, too, are fallible. But it becomes an issue when "it's" is part of your catchphrase:

Bonus points if you can spot all four improper uses of "it's" in this post:

This one takes the cake:

900 million dollars dollars?

And here's the latest instance. In case you haven't heard about it, Haley is referring to a story about her daughter getting a job in the Statehouse gift shop:

We promise we're working on some real news stories, and we'll get back to those soon. This was just sticking in our craw. In the meantime, sing it again, Strong Bad.
