“I don’t see how he’s going to get it past”


    Another day, another spelling mistake by the Washington Post.

    McDonnell is scheduled to unveil his plan for ABC privatization next week. Howell said she continues to hear skepticism from fellow Democrats and some Republicans about the governor’s claim that his plan will fully replace the annual revenue the state now receives from its 332 liquor stores.

    “I don’t see how he’s going to get it past,” she said.

    Past, passed, whatever (or maybe, as Faulkner said, “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.”). So, here’s a fun idea: read the newspaper, see how many typos you can find, winner gets a metal medal. Heh.

    UPDATE: There are at least two glaring mistakes in this article, can you find them? ­čÖé

    UPDATE #2: Whoops, looks like another big mistake for the Post.

    UPDATE #3: In this article, on the Virginia Politics blog, they spell the same person’s name alternately as “Carlos A Martinelly-Montano” and as “Martinelly-Mantano.” In the first instance, how about a period after the middle initial?  In the second, is it “Mantano” or “Montano?”
