Proving copy editors are needed

The AP either showed bad copy editing skills or its political leanings.

The following is from the Daily Kos but if you use Google you get a similar result.

HILARIOUS - AP calls out Joe Lieberman

Mon Aug 18, 2008 at 08:18:07 PM PDT

Thank you AP for giving us a good heartfelt chuckle this evening! Fantastic.

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.

the Google "Joe Lieberman, the Democratic vice presidential prick in
2000" and you will find a handful of papers who have it. Some others
seem to have the G-rated friendly, but much less funny and correct

Notice the staff writer's last name. For some strange reason, snicker, that was left intact.

Brilliant AP, positively brilliant! BWWAahahahahaha!!
