Oops. AP calls Joe Liberman a "prick"
A classic typo was briefly circulated in a major Associated Press dispatch. Many lefty "moonbats", who have frequently snarked about turncoat Sen. Joe Lieberman -- the Democrat turned Independent who has endorsed John McCain -- found it all too apt, according to the sharpeyed folks at Editor and Publisher.
The typo, in an article about the upcoming vice presidential nominations due from McCain and Barack Obama and written by one of the top AP political writers, Nedra Pickler, was soon corrected but can still be found viewed via Google at numerous news sites early this morning.
After focusing on Obama, the article discusses several possible McCain picks, and relates, "His top contenders are said to include Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Less traditional choices mentioned include former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, an abortion-rights supporter, and Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, the Democratic vice presidential prick in 2000 who now is an independent."
