EDITING MISTAKES: NEVER FUN. The New Republic's virtual primary has amended one of its entries due to an "editing mistake" in the initial posting. The nature of that "editing mistake"? I can't remember the text verbatim, but I believe the entry began with the sentence: "John Kerry is a liar."

TNR's really swinging for the fences in terms of foot-in-mouthisms these days, ain't it? I guess this goes to show, though, that having an editor is not a foolproof prophylactic against posting dumb things on the internet. Which is, I suppose, a small comparative victory for bloggerdom.
